BathHouse Journal


Edited by current creative writing graduate students at Eastern Michigan University, BathHouse is an online journal that promotes interdisciplinary and hybrid arts with a special emphasis on language and innovation. We are interested in art that blurs the lines of conventional form and genre.

BathHouse takes its name from the 19th century sanatoriums, bath houses, and mineral water wells that flourished in Ypsilanti, Michigan, until truth in labelling laws were passed. The “foul smelling” waters of the Atlantis well were bottled and shipped nationwide as a cure for 33 disorders of the blood.
