The Champagne Room was founded in 2018 by Heather Bartel and Edward Stephens as a print-only literary space meant to hold both the irreverent and profound.
After a hiatus and a shift in its collaborative landscape, the journal now functions as a women-owned and operated project run by Heather Bartel and E.A. Midnight.
As the journal continues to evolve, the editors intend to use its pages and the space beyond to explore authenticity, becoming, illumination; we are seeking to expand the definition of a room: what it is made of and what it contains.
We remain devoted to making this literary space physical.
