Welcome to Terracotta Typewriter
A literary journal with Chinese characteristics.

This is the only China-themed, English-language literary journal. This site is the creation of American expatriate writer and editor in China, Matthew Lubin. The purpose of this literary journal is to create a creative outlet for those with a connection to China.

We invite writers of all backgrounds, genres, and forms to make the great leap forward and submit manuscripts that conform to our submission guidelines. We look forward to reading the creativity of the Middle Kingdom.

Please visit our issues page to read current and previous issues of Terracotta Typewriter in PDF format.

Peruse our News section for updates on the literary journal and for our weekly features of Mandarin Mondays and Get Over the Hump writing prompts.
