Ghost Parachute seeks to publish writing that is unapologetically bold. We wish to lose ourselves in fresh and vibrant imagery. We want to read what we’ve always known but were too afraid to say. We want to read a story unlike any other story we’ve read before. It’s easy to view the world in black and white, so Ghost Parachute paints a streak of gray. Great stories don’t ride the popular, easy narrative, and great characters are often impossible to love yet we love them anyway. We aim to unleash the spider behind the rose and dance in the surreal.
Editor-in-Chief and Founder
Brett Pribble would like to reassure you that his hands aren’t shaking because he’s nervous. They’re trembling due to a benign essential tremor, so stop asking him about it. He unremittingly tries to connect his love of searing writing to his obsession with even numbers and caramel creamers. In his free time, he overdoses on Depeche Mode and talks to himself. Follow him on Twitter: @brettpribble.
Jaclyn Kobylarski is a displaced New Yorker born and raised in Florida. Her homeland is anywhere inevitably close to being swallowed by rising sea levels. Jaclyn simultaneously loves body horror and lavender-scented candles, and she is not really sorry for never giving that book back to you that she borrowed in 2008, or 2011, or last November. Follow her on Twitter @jaclynpagek.
