Journal Petrichor Review

Journal Phantom Drift: A Journal of New Fabulism

Phantom Drift is one of the few literary journals in the United States focused on fabulist writing. We aim to nurture the literature of fabulism, the fantastic, and the surreal by publishing an appealing, top-quality perfectbound literary journal featuring only the best of fiction and poetry from the U.S. and abroad. 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.
