CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO BARRELHOUSE


Time to Riot
Barrelhouse Issue 15 will feature a special themed section on the topic of riots.

Whether that term makes you think of civil disobedience, riot grrrls, sports fans celebrating a championship, Quiet Riot, or something else, we want to read your work.

We want writing that is going to throw bricks through windows and flip cars and start fires and charge through clouds of tear gas carrying nothing but a stick and a lifetime of outrage. ​We want you to scare us a little.​ Deadline May 1st.
SUBMIT!


The 90's Online Issue
The dream of the 90s is alive at Barrelhouse!

We’re in search of stories, poems, and essays that celebrate one of the greatest decades in relatively recent history: the 1990s. Whether you take us back or bring it forward, show us how it was all about the Benjamins, saluting your shorts, and whatever pogs were. Make us think about Squeezit, royalty in Bel-Air, and Blind Melon in new, 21st century ways.

Most of all? Put more heart in your work than the Spice Girls, and more danger than Beavis and Butt-Head with rocket launchers.
