The Northwest Passage is Western Oregon University’s student-run literary and art magazine. This is a publication of submitted works from students and faculty of WOU. The Passage has been in publication in one form or another for 73 years, supporting the creative arts every step of the way. You will find a range of creations within the pages of the magazine.
The Northwest Passage is in no way affiliated with any single department at Western Oregon University, and is entirely funded with student fees. The content of the Northwest Passage does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Western Oregon University, its Media Board, administration, staff, faculty, or student body. It does, however, reflect the desire to promote and distribute quality literature and art created by persons from every walk of life. The sole criterion for acceptance of material for publication in Northwest Passage is that of excellence.
