Barred Owl Press is a new media company dedicated to empowering patients.

We believe that democracy is built by and for patients. This isn't the "sick club," because we will all be a patient at some point in our lives, and so we're keeping the name general to reflect that recognition.

The first publication under Barred Owl Press is Life Inside, cancer-patient essays created by founder and health reporter, Alexandra Glorioso.

Alexandra moved Life Inside from Substack.

This company is evolving to become a type of city-square online for patients to have somewhere to go to exchange legitimate information and purchase what they need to get through treatment.

To that end, if you are writing about or are making things related to chronic illness, and you want to sell your merchandise through Barred Owl Press, please get in touch.

You can contact Alexandra on email at or on her cell at 347-443-4890.

We look forward to hearing from you!
