Burnside Review Press
We are pleased to announce that Burnside Review Press is expanding and will begin to publish full length books. All titles will be taken from manuscripts submitted during our reading period. Each year we will choose one manuscript as the winner of the Burnside Review Press Prize. We will also be choosing a minimum of one other title from those manuscripts submitted for publication. The same care and craft that has gone into the design of Burnside Review will go into the production of our books.
