Type Media Center is proud to support hard-hitting journalism that holds power to account — but we can’t do it without you.

We are a non-profit home for independent journalists and truth-tellers at all stages of their careers. Our mission is to produce high-impact journalism and literary nonfiction that addresses injustice and inequality, catalyzes change, informs and uplifts social movements, and sparks national and global conversations while transforming and diversifying the fields of journalism and publishing.


Type Media Center’s annual gala will take place on December 10th, 2019 in New York City. At each year’s gala we award the Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship, a $100,000 award given to an individual or organization who challenges the status quo through distinctive and socially responsible work. Previous winners have included Colin Kaepernick, Amy Goodman, and the Parkland students who founded March for Our Lives. This year, we look forward to honoring the Sunrise Movement.
