Built for writers. Loved by readers.

It makes no difference to us whether or not you’ve already been published, or how often. In our pages, you’ll find wonderful poems and short stories written by experienced, published writers… and by folks whose work has never appeared anywhere before.

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 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.

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. He usually responds within a week. More about us.

All submissions are powered by Submittable, a submission management platform trusted by Airbnb, Harvard, NPR, TechCrunch, and over 300 universities.
