Typishly is an online literary magazine publishing short fiction and poetry submitted by established and emerging writers. When we ask writers why they like Typishly, they talk about three things.
1. Personalized note.
Many writers tell us they have never received a personalized rejection note from a literary magazine. Even if your short story or poetry is not accepted for publication, Typishly’s editor Jon will briefly mention something helikes about your writing, because it’s encouraging to know someone has read and thought about your work.
2. One day response.
Writers have told us they don’t like it when literary journals take months to get back to them. So we respond in one dayand publish the next.
3. Beautiful design.
Writers we’ve published tell us they love the way their page looks on Typishly. We’ve been called beautiful, stylish, visual, cool, gorgeous, text-y, smart, inspiring, wonderful, eclectic, vivid, visceral, stunning, challenging, delightful… and sometimes weird.
Creativity, quality, diversity.
