Phantom Drift is a tax-exempt, non-profit journal dedicated to publishing fabulist writers and artists by producing a perfect-bound print edition and paying contributors for their work. Our operating expenses have increased (printing, design, website, submissions manager, etc.) and services that were once provided without cost, like calls for submissions, are now charging fees. Our editors, who donate their time and experience to select the best work for each issue, have elected to charge a $3 submission fee so we can continue our commitment to pay contributors for their work. We hope Phantom Drift: A Journal of New Fabulism is a journal you can support by purchasing an issue, submitting material or leaving us a tax-deductible tip to help cover our costs.
