The Twin Bill a literary baseball publication seeks submissions

web site

Deadline: September 30, 2020

Submissions are open until September 30, 2020, for our quarterly online publication. They will be accepted on a rolling basis.

In the subject line, please write the type of submission and the title and send it to

All submissions will be read and a personal response will be sent. If we don’t respond after a month, feel free to nudge us, it likely means we’re still interested. We are also looking for illustrators for our pieces, please send an email if interested. As of now, there is no payment, which we are working to change.

Essays — 600-1000 word essays. We are looking for everything from essays on your favorite player to playing the game as a child. We want stories. We don’t want your thoughts on this season or other general blog posts. We are open to longer essays, but please pitch them before sending them.

Fiction — Short fiction up to 3,000 words. We are looking for stories with heart that in some way involves baseball. We won’t rule out poetry, but we are more interested in fiction. Please don’t send any “Casey At the Bat” parodies.

Interviews — Discussions with authors and others around the game. If you can get Willie Mays, we are certainly interested, but also looking for the unexpected stories from people around baseball. Please pitch us your interview describing what intrigues you about the subject and we will let you know if we are interested.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know promptly if the work has been accepted elsewhere. We will only consider previously unpublished work. Authors retain all right’s to their work.

Feel free to ask any other questions, we’d love to hear from you.
