Typishly is an online literary magazine publishing short fiction and poetry submitted by established and emerging writers.

Our journal has been called beautiful, stylish, cool, gorgeous, text-y, smart, inspiring, wonderful, eclectic, vivid, visceral, stunning, challenging… and sometimes weird. We strive for creativity, quality and diversity. Let’s begin with something that writers tell us they love:

We respond in one day. Publish the next.

Typishly is fast. We don’t do things monthly or quarterly or annually. We do things right now. Our Founding Editor Jon will read and respond to your poetry or short story in one day. If he likes it, then the day after that, your writing will be posted on our website.

Fast, friendly, beautiful.

When Jon launched Typishly, he dreamed of a creative space that would be ‘fast, friendly and beautiful’. His goal is to inspire writers to do their best work. Jon brings years of experience as a Creative Director. He enjoys encouraging creative writers and discovering new writing talent. Even his ‘maybe next time’ notes are friendly. Jon says: “When you see the status on Submittable change to ‘In Progress’, that’s me.”

Inspiring creativity.

Jon says: “Inspiring creative people is one of the joys of devoting time to Typishly. I read every submission (and every cover letter and bio). I respond in one day because I have a lot of respect for writers and I can’t imagine making them wait weeks or even months for a response. We don’t have the resources to promise feedback to writers, but whenever I can, I try to mention things I like about their writing. Here’s what I get asked most: what kind of writing does Typishly publish? Have a look at our FAQs for the answer to that question and many more.”

Supporting new and emerging writers.

Every week, Typishly sends out a special call for Emerging Writer Thursdays for writers who have been published three or fewer times, with a Thursday submission deadline. Unpublished newbies are encouraged to submit. Your short story or poetry will be considered along with work submitted by other emerging writers. Emerging Writer Thursdays also give new and emerging writers a break on our regular submission fee. It’s the lowest priced item in our shopping cart.

Built for writers. Loved by readers.

It makes no difference to us whether or not you’ve been published before, or how often. In our pages, you’ll find poems and short stories written by experienced, published writers… and by new and emerging writers 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. Read the bios of our Featured Writers.

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