Burner is that girl. She’s witty, pretty, and doesn’t dumb herself down. By day, she’s a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances gogo. She’s the chick you knew in high school who quoted Kirkegaard by heart and kept a copy of Cosmo under her bed. She’s a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent.
Burner contributors’ work gets your blood pumping, heart racing, and induces literary, musical, visual crushes. You don’t need to be of the fairer sex to contribute, nor should your submission necessarily have anything to do with women’s interests or issues. We’re not ruling that out; we’re not ruling anything out. The Burner woman, after all, could just as well be a man. (An angel-faced, Rimbaud-spouting, great haircut kind of man, but a man all the same.)
