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 poetry’s timeless power to inspire, transform, and transcend our day to day lives, and in its ability to move, comfort, and console us in the same breath. Above all, we believe that poetry is freedom—freedom to, freedom from, freedom of. And we’re here to do our bit to promote that freedom.
