burner_logo.jpgBurner Magazine

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. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like Margaret Atwood.
