Message from Typehouse’s EIC, Val
Greetings submitters, contributors, and readers. This is a quick update on the status of Typehouse, as there has been little activity here for a few months, and emails and responses and such are behind. I’ve mentioned briefly a couple of places that I had been dealing with some health issues, but the long and short of it is that my health issues got much worse and overwhelmed me. Everything kinda crashed down and I had so many balls drop that I just couldn’t keep any in the air. With some new diagnoses, guidance, and ongoing treatment plans I’m doing better, and pulling things back together.What this means for Typehouse: Because we have been mostly inactive for most of the year we lost our financing income flow, which mean we have to build it back up. Because we don’t want to do the issues half-assed, we are pushing issue 28 to May of 2024. That will help us get back onto our feet to do it properly. We are also pausing some of the plans we were doing to expand until the core, Typehouse Magazine itself, is back on stable ground. There are emails and responses I owe, but I am working on getting everything caught up, and our new guidelines and open periods will be up on the submissions page shortly. I love Typehouse though, it will be 10 years in January! and I don’t want to let it fade away. We are now putting structures into place to get it going again.
Owed emails will go out shortly, almost all outstanding submissions have been responded to with the rest very soon, and guidelines up soon. We will reopen to almost all submissions by the 20th, with fee free submissions for Native/First Nations creators. In addition, as we were closed in September and October, Hispanic/Latino/a/e/x creators will also be able to submit fee free for the rest of November as we missed their submission period.Thank you for everyone’s patience with Typehouse, and me as we work to come back, and your support and the good things you say about Typehouse makes it worthwhile for me and the rest of Typehouse’s editors.
