Burning Eye Books

Here at Burning Eye Books we think of ourselves an an upstart indie publishing co.

We focus primarily on Performance Poetry. We have heard that Performance Poetry does not transfer to the page. We think this is untrue and we intend to prove it! We don’t mind if you call it Spoken Word tho’. That works as well.

Oversteps Books was founded in 1992 by the poet and translator, Anne Born (1924 – 2011). The poet and lecturer, Alwyn Marriage, became Managing Editor in 2008. Oversteps poets give regular poetry readings at festivals and other events.
