Self discovery and Social justice

An ongoing spiritual light...the Burning Bush is a fire that does not consume itself. Instead, it represents the light of those who bring love and inspiration to our world. BBBOOKS.COM is our web incarnation.

We publish poetry, fiction and non-fiction in our lit journal, IN OUR OWN WORDS, featuring the work of Creative Writing students, our contest winners and various worthy submissions we receive. Bookstores, libraries and colleges may order New to North America, Second Edition from Powells Books, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Small Press Distribution or directly from us.

We hold an annual poetry contest, the Burning Bush Poetry Prize, post Calls for Submission, and offer tools for writers. We are committed to social and economic justice, and the profoundly personal process that leads us there.

At BBP we believe writing is an artform, a process, and a fundamental human right. We understand that all writing has a political context, even through omission. On the other hand, overly polemic, dogmatic writing does little to inspire readers to think for themselves. At BBP we wish to support the power to think independently, the most precious component of human free will. Accordingly we support PEN worldwide in its efforts to defend writers internationally.

BBP is not affiliated with any particular political or religious group; we are nonsectarian. Writings contained on this web site do not necessarily represent the opinions of the staff or management of BBP.

All submissions for IN OUR OWN WORDS and the BURNING BUSH POETRY PRIZE should be sent via US mail. If we wish to publish your work, we will contact you via email or US mail. Kindly include your latest contact information (email) or/and a stamped self addressed envelope.
