Built for writers. Loved by readers.

We welcome your submission. It makes no difference to us whether or not you’ve been published before, or how often. In our pages, you’ll find wonderful poems and short stories written by experienced writers… and by folks whose work has never appeared anywhere. The quality of your writing is all that matters.

Our authors include a founding editor at Vanity Fair, a former TV producer for 60 Minutes, newspaper journalists, an international diplomat, veterans, novelists, university professors, lawyers, medical professionals, teachers, MFA students, professional actors and musicians, visual artists, retirees, homemakers, high school students, an Olympian, and a guy who works in demolition. They live in America, the UK, Italy, Sweden, Australia, Canada and elsewhere.

Each of our contributing writers has a dedicated author page displaying the portfolio of work they have published on Typishly. Here is an example.

Our Founding Editor is a Creative Director and writer who has received international awards for creativity and has been encouraging creative people for a couple of decades. Jon reads all submissions, cover letters and bios. More about us.
