Barrelhouse Turns 10, Publishes Books


Ten years marks the “tin anniversary,” but lit-mag Barrelhouse is celebrating theirs in a different way: by starting a small press!

Two of Barrelhouse’s first titles are You’re Going to Miss Me When You’re Bored, a poetry collection by Justin Marks, and Thanks and Sorry and Good Luck: Rejection Letters from the Eyeshot Outbox, a nonfiction book by Lee Klein.

Read more about how the journal has weathered the stormy publishing world for ten whole years—and the “personal and smart and funny and weird and inventive” poetry they’re now publishing in book form.
