Call for Submissions.

Phantom Drift Limited announces that we are accepting submissions for our second  issue, “Writing the Weird, Wyrding the Word,” beginning December 1, 2011. We will be reading through March 31, 2012. Our first issue, “Perfect Conditions for Magical Thinking,” was a perfectbound, 160 pg. journal released October 1, 2011, and included an outstanding field of diverse and talented writers from around the country and overseas. We encourage you to read a copy so you can familiarize yourself with the range of work we are seeking. We’re looking for flash fiction, short stories, poetry and prose poems, work readers might label as new weird, slipstream and/or fantastic, work our poetry editor, Matt Schumacher, says “shatters or valuably distorts reality, whether this means surrealism, magic realism, fantastique, or bizarrerie.” Fiction editor Leslie What likes stories “that favor the unusual over the usual…stories that create a milieu where anything can happen.” We pay on publication ($10-$25 for flash fiction up to 2,000 words and $50 for short stories 2001 – 6500 words, $10 per poem, $10-$50 for interviews and critical essays—plus one contributor copy). Submissions can be made on our website at:  Just click on SUBMIT button and you can use to submit your story, poem or article in Word or Rich Text Format. Phantom Drift 1 may be purchased from our site for $15 postage paid. Subscriptions to #2 can be made by sending payment to: Phantom Drift, c/o Wordcraft of Oregon, LLC,  PO Box 3235, La Grande, OR 97850. There are no submission fees.

Phantom Drift Limited is a non-profit organization dedicated to building an understanding of and appreciation for New Fabulism and a Literature of the Fantastic. The journal will be published in the fall of each year. Donations are deductible.
