Editorial Focus

Phantom Drift is one of the few literary journals in the United States focused on fabulist writing. It aims to nurture the literature of fabulism, the fantastic, and the surreal by publishing an appealing, top-quality perfectly bound literary journal.

Tips From the Editor

Our support for writers takes the form of not only providing a showcase for their works, but offering payment, a practice that both assures us the best of writers' work and supports literature as a whole.

To get an idea of the range of work we seek, we encourage writers to check our website. Do not submit if work has been published elsewhere. Due to increased production costs, we have instituted a $3 reading fee to maintain payment to contributors ($5 a page, $10 minimum).
