Issue 70 cover

Poetry, Fiction & Memoir
Soft cover | 176 Pages | $15

Welcome to the winter of 2021 and a world that keeps challenging us to stay grounded and hopeful. Passager’s 70th issue begins with a “Pandemic Haiku” series where Philip Allen addresses us as “Zoomlings” and writes of quiet cars no longer going anywhere and essential workers at risk. We hope you will find good companionship in these pages.
