We publish fiction, poetry, music, visual media, and otherwise in English, Català, Castellano, and Deutsch. We frequently publish work—or play—by writers and artists from outside the United States and actively seek more submissions by neurodivergent, BIPOC, women+, and LGBTQ+ writers, as well as their allies. Pieces concerned with ecological themes or inclusive of nonhuman species are welcome.

We strongly encourage those submitting to our journal to sample a few pieces before they do so, as what we publish is pointed and eclectic. It is worth reviewing the Submissions page on the website before reading the detailed submission guidelines found on Submittable. Authors with financial constraints may forego the submission fee by contacting us directly via the website Contact page.

The Twin Bill is a quarterly online literary baseball publication founded in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. We celebrate the rich history of the game while also recognizing its vibrant present through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and visual art. We welcome writers of all levels and experiences.

We want to hear your story about baseball. It generally helps if you focus on a single game or moment as opposed to listing multiple ones.

Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

We seek to publish unorthodox approaches to form and aesthetics. We love work that is nongenre, those that straddle multiple categories. We want memorable, haunting approaches to art and language that turn us inside out and convey novel insights into the human experience.

You might describe us as a heavy metal acid trip via literature. We believe books are hallucinogens suffused with emotion, feeling, and sensation. Our books wobble in the frame of reality and dissect the prism of surreality. These books tend to be difficult to categorize, but together they form a kaleidoscopic mirror of an increasingly bleak world. However, we're far from hopeless. We like to have fun and believe in the power of art. We are a space for writers to explore their risky ideas in new and interesting ways. Anyone with an open mind is welcome to join the party. 

We are seeking imaginative and challenging books that push boundaries. We are as interested in mood, sensation, and altered states of perception as we are in the story. We like stories with the ethereal quality of memory filtered through a psychedelic kaleidoscope. We want darkly peculiar narratives that are compelling and have a range of emotion. We want daring work that keeps us on edge, waiting for the next ghost to materialize. Surprise us. Most of all, we want books that take risks. Show us something we've never seen before.

I am a multigenre writer who writes poetry and prose. I have an MFA in fiction; however, I have a strong almost double major emphasis in poetry. I am interested in narrative poetry as a form to enrich fiction. I am currently working on a novel set in the 1930s South, primarily Little Rock, AR with an adventure to Scottsboro, AL. I have listed my interests as historical and regional to create a writing group also writing within this era. As a Black writer, my focus is on Black community in the novel. I am particularly interested in the ways that racism as a background impacts the foreground of the emotional lives and personal development of the characters alongside the family bonds formed. I have a complete draft of my novel and am currently outlining and working more deeply on characterization. I’m looking for a a characterization and outlining group to join the journey!
