For the past two years, The Passed Note has proven itself as a magazine that strives to publish excellent, engaging fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, and art for teens, by adults who have been there. We’ve published the writing and art of diverse and talented writers and have garnered thousands of regular readers across the world.
Young adult literature is life-saving and powerful. In a difficult time, teens need writing and art that speaks directly to them. As proven by #WeNeedDiverseBooks and #YASaves, teens depend on literature to help them feel heard, less lonely, and prepared to take on the stresses of everyday life. Every member of The Passed Note team has a story of how young adult literature was there for them as a teen; now we seek to pass that experience on to the next generation. We hope to bring paintings, photographs, poetry, and stories to the lives of the young adults who desperately need them.
With your help, we can widen our advertising power, increase our author honorariums, and protect our brand. All of this will aid in our vision of providing more content for young adult readers with the hope of encouraging a compassionate and intelligent generation.
