Barrelhouse - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Barrelhouse is an independent non-profit literary organization.

Barrelhouse bridges the gap between serious art and pop culture.

Barrelhouse is a biannual print journal featuring fiction, poetry, interviews, and essays about music, art, and the detritus of popular culture.

Barrelhouse is a web site that regularly posts new short fiction, nonfiction, interviews, and random stuff.

Barrelhouse is produced by writers for readers who are looking for quality writing with an edge and a sense of humor.

Stories originally published in Barrelhouse have been featured in the Best American Nonrequired Reading, Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy, and the Million Writer’s Award.

Barrelhouse Presents is a monthly reading series in DC showcasing the work of other literary magazines and small presses whose work we believe in.

Barrelhouse supports the indie lit community through major events like the Conversations and Connections Conference and the Indie Lit City Summit.

Barrelhouse offers 8-week online workshops where writers get the straight dope on their work.
