We are looking for submissions of poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction and visual art. Writing that grabs us conveys a unique perspective and honest insight into our world. We are especially interested in underrepresented voices of all kinds, and we want to see submissions from writers and artists of all races, sexualities, nationalities, religions, and genders, as well as disabled and neurodivergent creators. Genre fiction submissions are welcome, particularly speculative fiction. We are all writers and artists, so simultaneous submission are encouraged, but please let us know immediately if it has been accepted elsewhere. Previously published work will not be considered, and this includes work published on social media and personal websites. If it available publicly online, that means it is published. Once you have received a response to a submission, please wait two months before sending us a new work. Submitting is free, but please consider tossing a couple of dollars our way with the feedback category - you'll receive personalized feedback on your submission!  

 

Typehouse is published in both PDF and print form.   We are slowly working our way up to paying professional rates, with contributors paid $10 for issue 15, and $15 for Issue 16. We hope to be able to top that with issue 17, although at minimum we will continue to pay $15 a submitter.  Payment is within 30 days of publication.  We take first publication rights exclusively for six months, and non-exclusive archival rights thereafter.  All other rights revert to the author upon publication, although if the piece is reprinted please be sure to acknowledge Typehouse Literary Magazine as its first publication. Typehouse is published tri-annually in January, May, and September, and are closed to general written submissions during those months. Feedback submissions and visual arts submissions will remain open. 

Keep Creating!

You can find her at venitablackburn.com and on Twitter @Venita Blackburn .

She says:

“Bring on the odd characters, the  beautiful sentences, the dastardly deeds and variations of form that  transcend expectations yet demonstrates structural control. I enjoy  traditional narratives and/or magical scenarios plus any combination of  the two. Culturally challenging content that manages to invest in every  grain of salt that feeds our civilization would also be pretty  marvelous. ”
