Covering culture, politics and literature, bookish lit mag The Drift features ‘new work and new ideas by young writers who haven’t yet been absorbed into the media hivemind’, through a healthy dose of long form writing, cultural criticism, fiction, poetry and a smart (but ‘extremely abbreviated’) reviews section. Interestingly, each issue's cover is an adaptation of two socialist mags from the 1910s, The Masses and The Liberator, with the original cover reproduced towards the end of the issue.
This issue, their eleventh, opens with an interview with Argentine political theorist and activist Verónica Gago on the ‘pink tide’, followed by essays on The Little Mermaid and ecoterrorism, a short story on a haunted B&B, and more.
