About Bathhouse

Edited by current and former Eastern Michigan University graduate
students in Creative Writing, BathHouse promotes interdisciplinary and
hybrid arts with a special emphasis on language. It takes its name from the 19th-century sanatoriums, bathhouses, and mineral water wells that
flourished in Ypsilanti, Michigan until truth in labeling laws were passed.
The "foul smelling" waters of the Atlantis well, in the vicinity of the current Jones-Goddard dorm on the EMU campus, were bottled and shipped nationwide as a cure for 33 disorders of the blood.
