Who we are

At The Passed Note, we root for the rabble rousers, the smart girls in the back, the artists, the popular kids, the nerds, the quiet guys. We believe they are worthy of good literature and fantastic art, not getting talked down to and shoved aside. So we decided to create a literary journal specifically for young adults. None of that watered down school-reading: we want to hold space for the weird, the weary, the dramatic, the real.
