We’re The Type!

Just a small, independent journal on a mission to find and publish some of the best new poetry out there today. The Type was founded in Newcastle upon Tyne by Kelly Dent, a writer with nearly a decade of experience reviewing poetry and prose across a wide range of themes and genres, and is co-edited by Christa Boffa, herself an accomplished poet and professional content creator and curator based in Florence, Italy.

At The Type, we believe in the timeless power of words to inspire, transform, and transcend our day-to-day lives. It has the ability to move, comfort, unnerve, and console us in the same breath.

Above all, we believe that writing is freedomβ€”freedom to, freedom from, freedom of. And we’re here to do our bit to promote that freedom.
