Burning Books Press

A light show of flaming comets dropping to earth and paintings on the walls created the multi media atmosphere at last night's launch of Definitely Superior's publishing venture

Add in a table of candles (igniting the flame for the literary arts) , three galleries of sculpture, photography and art works, including miraculous baskets made of wasps nests, walking dresses made of paper, plus food, drink, poetry readings, a few short speeches, a video and lots of music including songs by Shy-Ann Hovorka, the Ukeladies and Jamie Smith of the Auditor General.

Two new Definitely Superior zines, Dieactive and Squeeze, were for sale. is a three year pilot project funded by the Ontario Arts Council which will also provide a consultant to get the venture off on a good start. The ship is launched, ready for an exciting voyage. Good luck to the good ship

Check this blog below for submission information to their first book, a compilation titled "Fuel".

"When you pass me on the street, at a crosswalk or on a corner, slow your step. I will leave the breath of a songbird in your coat pocket." from a poem by Ashleigh Gehl in the zine "Squeeze."
