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 a bi-annual literary magazine founded in Tampa, FL in 2013; currently, we have staff members in Austin, Tampa, Dryden, Greenville, Kingsport, and Santa Monica. While our focus is on fiction, poetry, photography, graphic narrative, and interviews, we're also open to experimental and hybrid forms.
As of 2018, we pay our contributors (see guidelines for rates) for each contribution made to our magazine.
