Editorial Focus

John Updike once said, "Creativity is merely a plus name for regular activity. Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better." At Driftwood Press, we are actively searching for artists who care about doing it right, or better. We are excited to receive your submissions and will diligently work to bring you the best in literary criticism, short fiction, poetry, graphic narrative, photography, art, and interviews. We're partial towards prose poetry and stream of consciousness prose, but open to all literary genres and styles.

Tips From the Editor

Though the best way to get an understanding of what we publish is to read through our previous issues, we also encourage submitters to check out the following magazines and journals that we feel share our artistic tastes and aesthetic: McSweeney's, Tin House, [PANK], Crazy Horse, Carve Magazine, Apalachee Review, The Citron Review, Squalorly: literature from the other side, and Rock & Sling.
