Typishly is a popular online literary magazine publishing short fiction and poetry submitted by established and emerging writers. Our website receives several hundred thousand page views a year. We aim to inspire writers by responding overnight with a few words of encouragement, no matter how much effort that takes, no matter how many hours it consumes, seven days a week. 

Personalized response in 24 hours. 

Typishly’s editor Jon has encouraged writers for years as a Creative Director. He has received international awards for his creativity. 

Typishly is a positive and welcoming space for writers, where creativity is respected, cherished and nourished. We strive to encourage and inspire, even when responding to short stories and poetry not accepted for publication.

Jon responds to all submissions in one day with a friendly personalized note briefly pointing out phrases or ideas he likes, because it’s good to know someone has read and thought about your work. (For much more, see our FAQs.)

Typishly has been called beautiful, stylish, visual, cool, gorgeous, text-y, inspiring, wonderful, eclectic, vivid, visceral, stunning, challenging, smart, delightful… and sometimes weird. We have good things on the go every day.
