Excited? We are!
As you may know, Typehouse is based in Oregon, and Gorham Printing, who we use for our physical issues, is in Washington. The West Coast has pretty much been on stay-at-home orders of one sort or another for quite a bit, which is definitely having a very positive effect. However, there is uncertainly about when that will be lifted. As of right now they are saying May 4th in Washington, but I do not see that very likely, as opening up too soon will cause another spike.
So as an editorial team we have made the tough decision to publish both the May and September issues as a group super (20th!) issue. We considered a lot of options, but ultimately thought it was better to have a date that is probably safe to settle on rather than having to risk keep moving things around, and maybe having to cancel it anyway. We will remain open to submissions as we work virtually anyway, and will probably close to submissions the beginning of August to put the issue together and have it out on time.
I know this might be frustrating, and it is for us to, but I’d rather things happen in a way that keeps the most people safe, so we will adapt. (And hey! Super 20th jumbo issue? Might have to do something super special!)
We super appreciate all of our readers and submitters and supporters. I hope you all are well and safe, and that you are dealing with the stress as well as possible. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your participation in our magazine!

It is that time again, where we start a new reading period and people move on, and we need a couple new faces! Right now we are looking for 1-2 poetry feedback editors and 1-3 prose feedback editors. Description of the position:
Read/provide feedback depending on position (see below)
Edit selected submissions for print in the magazine
Proof finished magazine before going to print
All positions will run though the end of January 2020, 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 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. https://submittable.com/. It’s very easy to use, and we will help you to learn to it.
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, publications, writer’s groups, schooling, etc., and whether the time and reading period commitment required will work for you.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Issue 13 is in our hands, and we will be shipping starting tomorrow! We are also open for orders on our website, so tell your friends and family and fellow writers. The PDF is up on the website as well, so take a look!
