2HB Submissions Open Call

Thu 7 July — Thu 1 September 2016

CCA will this year re-launch 2HB as a twice-yearly publication dedicated to creative and experimental writing in contemporary art, edited by Ainslie Roddick and Francis McKee, with Louise Shelley as Editor-at-large.

Following the publication of 20 issues in its current format, 2HB will be back with a new design and with move to a biannual format, allowing for a new biannual sister publication Small Black Reptile, which will specifically focus on critical writing.

2HB’s selection process focuses on creative writing or fiction with a critical awareness of issues. A journal for experimental art writing, 2HB facilitates a discursive space for writing in contemporary art practice and creates a platform for artists, writers and theorists to realise work that might not otherwise be published.

Texts of up to 2000 words are sought for the next issue, which will be launched at CCA as part of Book Week Scotland in November.

The next deadline for 2HB submission is Thursday 1 September 2016. Please send submissions to ainslie@cca-glasgow.com
