Typehouse Literary Magazine: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | August 2, 2018

A writer and artist run journal helmed in Portland, Oregon, Typehouse Literary Magazine publishes a wide variety of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. They are seeking insightful writing that captures the interest of readers. They want to showcase a broad range of individual perspectives on our shared human experience, and they especially like to feature marginalized voices. To get a sense of what they’re looking for, you can download the journal for free online.

Since 2013, Typehouse has published three issues a year–in both digital and print formats–in January, May, and September. They accept submissions on a rolling basis, but close to submissions during the months of January, May, and September when they are working to publish the journal. They ask that authors wait at least two months after receiving a response to submit again. Typehouse compensates all contributors with a $7 payment.

Authors of fiction and nonfiction may submit up to three pieces totalling 7,500 words or fewer. Although there’s no minimum length, Typehouse usually publishes pieces between 500 and 5,000 words. They accept all forms and styles of prose, they welcome genre fiction, and they have a special liking for speculative fiction. Poets may submit up to six poems in any form, on any subject.

Typehouse accepts submissions online, but not via post or by email. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors notify them immediately if their work is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work, including work that has been published anywhere online, including personal websites and social media.
