Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Barrelhouse is a non-profit literary organization consisting of pop culture obsessed oddballs who like to hang out in the corner. We started in 2004 as a literary magazine that sought to bridge the gap between high-brow literary tastes and the mid-brow appreciation of daily joys like good music, bad television and a decent hot dog. Barrelhouse is a fever dream populated by a passionate squad of volunteers who do a lot of things: we’re a print and online literary magazine, a small press bringing good books and chapbooks into the world, an organizer of cool literary events, and curators of a lovely website.
