Passager is a nonprofit journal and book press that publishes authors over 50. We want to bring attention to older writers and to encourage imagination throughout our lives.


Thank you for submitting!


Please note: for Pandemic Diaries, we are limiting the number of submissions we receive each month so we can be sure to read them all. If you're not seeing the submission form, please return on the first of the month to submit your entry. Thank you for the overwhelming responses! 

Are you keeping a journal or diary during this pandemic? If so, we invite you to share an entry (or two) with Passager, a journal and press dedicated to writers over 50.

We’re interested in observations, impressions, feelings, conversations, encounters with people, and places, drawings, and artwork.

We’re also interested in hearing about (or from) friends and family members living in more isolated retirement communities. Whatever your situation, if you are at home or working, volunteering, taking care of children and parents, please share an entry from your journal with us. No poems or essays, please. Journal entries only. Writers must be age 50 or older to submit.

Total Word Limit: 250 words 

Total Artwork Limit: 2 images

Please include: the date of the entry, your state/country, and how long you have been sheltering in place (if at all).

We will periodically post some entries in whole or part on our website. If yours is selected, we will contact you.
