Northwest Passage


Spring 2022: Celebrating 80 Years of

Art, Literature and Music

Welcome to the Northwest Passage!

The Northwest Passage is Western Oregon University’s student-run art and literary magazine. We publish student, faculty and alumni work once per term both in print and online on Issuu. We also publish our music submissions in a digital album during spring term. We strive for quality and this is a wonderful outlet for students attempting to build their portfolios.
