Dear Friends,

Most of Passager’s staff is on break during August, but while we’re away, we wanted to make sure you knew about this special themed issue guest edited by a team led by Christine Lincoln.

The theme is Ancestral or Generational Trauma. 

Whether it’s personal, family, or cultural and social trauma, our vision is to craft a singular story as told through a multi-verse of voices and points of view. Bearing witness that we are not alone.

The deadline to submit writing for this issue is September 15.

If you know others who might be interested in submitting work, please share the news.

For more information about the guest editors, the theme, or what and how to submit, visit our Submit page.

If you still have questions about submitting, you can write to our Editorial Assistant Breasia Boyd at

Meanwhile this month, you can also:

Currently, the 2022 Poetry Contest Issue is at the printer and will be landing in mailboxes in early September.

Enjoy your summer!

Kendra, Mary, Christine, Rosanne and Pantea
