CORRIDORS

  A students' magazine for mental health advocacy

"One need not be a Chamber — to be Haunted —
 One need not be a House —
 The Brain has Corridors ..."

 Emily Dickinson


CORRIDORS Magazine is an online literary magazine dedicated to showcasing the voices of students across the country who struggle with mental health issues. 

The magazine was started to create a space for young people with mental illnesses to express themselves through art and creative writing, building a community of students that support one another. We also publish nonfiction articles to educate our readers on individual topics facing the mental health community on college campuses. Our hope is that CORRIDORS comforts you, educates you, and makes you feel a little less alone in this world.

DIGITAL & WEB DIRECTOR / LOGO CREATOR // Alex Winzenread

Alex Winzenread does things on computers. Sometimes those things involve experimental fiction and the search for connection in an age where everything is connected. Sometimes those things are about colors, fonts, layout, and content, and making them all better. But whatever the things that Alex does may be, they're always on computers, because there's nothing more terrifying than living in the real world.
