BURNAWAY is a 501(c)(3) non-profit online magazine and destination for engaged dialogue about the arts.
BURNAWAY was founded by Jeremy Abernathy, Susannah Darrow, and Ben Grad in the summer of 2008, followed by an official site launch in October the same year. Our headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia. Through weekly reviews, columns, interviews, and podcasts, BURNAWAY attempts to respond to the famous challenge issued by William Faulkner:
So vast, so limitless in capacity is man’s imagination to disperse and burn away the rubble-dross of fact and probability, leaving only truth and dream. (Requiem for a Nun, 1951)
To “disperse and burn away”—a statement about the nature of creativity that compels us to look beyond what merely is and envision what could be.
