Though Burrow’s books and media reach beyond our city, the literary community in Orlando is really what sustains us. I’ve written a whole overview of Orlando’s lit community, but, in short, there are a lot of talented writers from all kinds of backgrounds. Tons of these writers come out to literary events, and many run their own literary events, host podcasts, volunteer at a bookstore or with kids, run a press, and thus contribute to the local lit community. I think one projects inspires the next, and it all works because writers here support each other. Other artists are also aware of their literary arts counterparts, and the local media recognizes literature more and more alongside the “mainstream” arts like dance and theater (and pop culture events). Burrow was created in order to find this community, and so if Orlando hadn’t turned out to be such a great place to be a writer/editor/publisher, Burrow probably wouldn’t exist.
