July 2021 News

Our 2021 Fiction contest is live!

Judged by the indomitable Angela Jackson-Brown, author of “When Stars Rain Down.” Deadline is September 30th, so come check out the contest page and enter!

And of course the new issue is out.

As we are switching out printing methods, all in-stock back issues of Typehouse Literary Magazine are 50% off. We’ve pulled out all available copies, so what is in stock is what we have. Use code 50/50 on checkout. (If you were a prior contributor who received a code for your issue, you can use both codes together in the same order.) Shipping not included.

And don’t forget we are looking for 2 Poetry Feedback editors!

And finally, feedback submissions reopen on the 15th of July. Received quality feedback from one of our editors and help support our being a paid market!

Typehouse Positions Open for Issue 23, September 2021

Poetry Feedback Editors – 2
Prose Feedback Editors – possibly 1 depending on submission flow.

No other positions currently open
Email typehouse (at)typehousemagazine.com
Editor Responsibilities:
Read and provide feedback
Edit selected submissions for print in the magazine
Proof finished magazine before going to print

All positions will run through the end of September 2021, and can then be continued for further reading periods to be decided each time. Sadly, this is a for the love of it project, as we are still working to bring up our pay to contributors. However, letters of recommendation, summaries of work performed, and paperwork for using for college requirements and jobs are gladly provided.

Time commitment will vary, but is very part time. The first six weeks are a probationary period to ensure that it will be a good fit for everyone, and that keeping up with the responsibilities will work.

Guidelines for Submission Reading.
We use Submittable for our submission process. http://submittable.com/. It’s very easy to use, and we will help you to become familiar with it.

Feedback Editors (2 Poetry, possibly 1 Prose):
Read feedback submissions, starting with the oldest, and provide feedback. Read “Maybe” submissions and weigh in with your opinion. Readers will be expected to provide feedback on at three submissions a week, as well as weigh in on “Maybe” submissions. (We do ask that you have experience with writing feedback for prose pieces, and we will ask for sample feedback on a test piece.)

Submission responses will be tallied, and EIC will stay in contact. Weeks off for travel or work can be arranged. All editors will be expected to help proof submissions as the end of the period in order to prepare the magazine for going to print.

If you are interested in this position send an email to typehouse(at) typehousemagazine(dot)com. Include information on your experience with creative writing, writer’s groups, providing feedback, etc., and whether the time and reading period commitment required will work for you.

We look forward to hearing from you!
