Use this space for the breath you can't quite catch. Use this space because your heart can't hold any more. Use this space to comfort the grieving, or to resist the violence that won't let up. Responses can encompass any of the genres Passages typically accepts; the only requirement is that they be direct responses to current events. Please indicate which genre you consider the piece to be so we can be sure to categorize it correctly. Submissions will be open as long as there are things to respond to, and will be published online.

PLEASE NOTE: Passages North seeks to create an inclusive space for writers from marginalized communities. Because these pieces are specifically in response to real-world news, we are particularly looking to include perspectives from within those communities affected. Simply put: use your head, use your heart, and make good choices.
