The Critical Pass Review


From the Editor

The Critical Pass Review is a semi-annual literary journal that was founded to bring exemplary fiction, poetry, and visual artwork to a broader group of readers nationwide. We strive to offer our readers the most singular and versatile writing from a wide spectrum of poets and fiction writers in vivid publications that transcend, in exciting digital contexts, the confines of conventional literary journals in print. The Critical Pass Review also hosts two, annual writing contests for outstanding poetry, the Critical Poet’s Award Contest and the Critical Junior Poet’s Award Contest. Our official website is at the following address:


Poetry, short fiction, excerpts from longer fictional works, and visual artwork of all kinds that represent singular excellence and commitment to syntax, diction, and craft (whether in conventional or unconventional forms).


We are currently accepting submissions for our Spring issue. We are also accepting submission for a Critical Junior Poet’s Award Contest for exceptional young writers.
