About

Founded in 2013, Typehouse Literary Magazine is a writer and artist run literary journal based in Portland, Oregon. While our content is primarily for adults, we welcome submissions from creators ranging from highschool age to one hundred plus. Our purpose is to showcase previously unpublished material of all genres, that seeks to offer a fresh, unique perspective of the human experience, with a focus on underrepresented voices of all kinds. We especially want to see submissions from writers and artists of all races, sexualities, nationalities, religions, and genders, as well as disabled and neurodivergent creators. No matter what you bring to life, we would like to see your work.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for feedback and some submission periods.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
