Fiction - 5000 words max

Max words: 5000

Max pieces: 1

Sub Genres: Literary, Experimental, Speculative

We stray away from young adult, fantasy, romance, novel chapters, and mainstream mystery fiction. While we're interested in experimentalism and stream of consciousness (not auto-writing), we do expect a story to have narrative momentum. Oftentimes, we're drawn to stories with a hint of surrealism, but we publish a little bit of every genre.

Poetry

Max lines: 60

Max pieces: 3

we are devoted to finding poetry of the highest caliber; we seek poetry of literary importance. Some of our favorite poets are Adrienne Rich, Aase Berg, Tomaž Šalamun, Roberto Bolaño, Sharon Olds, and Max Ritvo. Overly romanticized, antiquated, or colloquial poetry is not our focus. Narrative poetry, experimental forms, and content that reveals your unique style are welcomed.

Comics

Individual graphic works may range from a single image to twenty-two pages of comic art.

Art

About

Writing with Care 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. Driftwood Press is...
