As a timely follow-up to my recent post on a market for baseball writing, I’m happy to share this call for submissions just received from Adam Pachter (actually, I’ll ‘fess up and say that it was a conversation with Adam at the Grub Street “Muse and the Marketplace” conference this weekend that reminded me to post the other baseball writing news, too):
Adam Pachter, editor of Fenway Fiction, the first all-fiction anthology devoted to stories about the Boston Red Sox, is currently working on a sequel and would welcome submissions of short stories, play and novel excerpts, poems, etc. There are only two real requirements: 1)the submission must be fiction; and 2)it must relate in some way to the Red Sox. Stories from 1,000-10,000 words are fine, and I’d like to have submissions in at some point this summer. Everyone whose story is published in the sequel will receive a share of the royalties as payment. Send submissions to adampachter(at)yahoo(dot)com; if you’d like more information about Fenway Fiction, it’s in bookstores now or you can visit http://rounderbooks.com.
