Publishing Projects

With the help of excellent teachers and gifted book-making professionals, we publish select student work created in the Bureau of Fearless Ideas workshops and during our publishing projects. Our anthologies are on sale in our store and online. We also have an online literary journal. All proceeds from the sale of books (and space travel supplies) go to fund our programs.
