Burrow Press is the literary publisher of Stetson University's MFA of the Americas program, focusing on collaboration, translation, and literature in the expanded field. we're looking for traditional and experimental poetry and prose forms in all genres, including literary, horror, sci-fi/speculative, acknowledging that the best work often transcends these labels.
