Built for writers. Loved by readers.

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 he likes 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 day and 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.

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 Unpublished newbies are encouraged to submit.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.

Paying our submission fee does not guarantee that we will publish your work and is not a purchase of detailed feedback, editing services, or a writing review. Providing us with biographical information implies that you consent to its publication on our site if your story or poem is selected for publication. Before submitting to Typishly read our FAQs and Terms of Use.

This week, your short story or poem must involve these building blocks:

a river + grief

OR ... OPTION 2:

losing something + learning something

OR ... OPTION 3:

a most unusual man + his educated cricket

Welcome to Typishly.

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

Every week, Typishly sends out a call for Forever Wednesdays, with a Wednesday submission deadline. Forever Wednesdays are for writing you submitted to journals who haven't responded in like, forever. Submit one story or up to five poems per submission. 

Making writers wait weeks or months for a response might have been reasonable once upon a time, in the era of Emily Brontë or Walt Whitman. Surely, not in this century. 

We will read and respond to your simultaneous submission in one day. If accepted, then the day after that, your writing will be posted on our website. Because at Typishly, we don’t do things monthly or quarterly or annually. We do things right now.  

Fast, friendly, beautiful.

Even if your short story or poetry is not accepted for publication, Typishly’s editor Jon will mention something he likes about your writing, because it’s good to know someone has read and thought about your work.  

Writers we’ve published tell us they love the way their page looks on Typishly. Our journal has been called beautiful, stylish, cool, gorgeous, text-y, smart, wonderful, eclectic, vivid, visceral, stunning, challenging, delightful… and sometimes weird.
