Now in its 38th year, Anna Burland Services ‘hallmark’ continues to be
‘Creating the Incentive’

In 2003, David Burland, founder of the Anna Burland Services, together with Michel François, French Bilingual Poet recently arrived in the UK from the USA, initiated a number of literary projects to invite poets and writers worldwide to seek adventure on the literary trail.
The mind plays tricks on one’s sanity diverting the ability to sometimes rationalize. We are ourselves but a collection of experiences and, through literature, the Arts and our passion for creativity, we can ‘dream the dream’
Michel François
