Built for writers. Loved by readers.

In our pages, you’ll find poems and short stories written by experienced writers… and by new and emerging writers whose work has never appeared anywhere before.

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.

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 Unpublished newbies are encouraged to submit.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.
