Call for Submissions

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 make every effort to cover a wide spectrum of work in each issue. 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. Submitting is free, but please consider tossing a couple of dollars in the tip jar – you’ll receive personalized feedback on your submission! We are closed to regular submissions during the months of January, May, and September as we put together the new issue, although tip jar and visual arts submissions will remain open.

Prose Submissions:

There is no minimum number of words but we will most likely publish fiction and non-fiction between 1,000-5,000 words. We accept up to three prose submissions per author as long as the total number of words is less than 7,500. All genres and subjects are welcomed and encouraged.

Save submissions as either .doc or .rtf format, and include your contact information and the work’s title and word count in the document.


Poetry Submissions:

Up to six poems are accepted per submission, and all forms and subjects are encouraged. Save submissions as either .doc or .rtf format, and be sure to include your contact information and the title(s) in the document.

Visual Arts Submissions:

We would like to see artwork and photography in all media and of subjects. Up to six visual arts submissions are accepted at once, and can either be thumbnails or full size images. You can also include a document (in .doc or .rtf format) with a write-up of your work.


Typehouse is published in both PDF and print form, and is available on Amazon. Contributors are not compensated, although a modest honorarium will be awarded to the winner of our Editor’s Choice award each issue. We hope to change this in the near future. We take first publication rights and non-exclusive archival rights. 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.

We are now accepting submissions exclusively through Submittable. Click on the link below to submit.
