Now in its second year, 2HB is a quarterly publication dedicated to creative writing and experimental writing in contemporary art. Edited by Louise Shelley and Francis McKee.

Submissions from interested writers are now welcome for 2HB Volumes 6 to 9.

The 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.

Inspired by publications such as New York's Dot Dot Dot and Cabinet Magazine and The Netherlands' F.R. David., 2HB is the first such project to come out of a contemporary art institution in Scotland.

2HB Volumes 1 to 5 are available from CCA for £3 each. Writers include: Laura Aldridge, Becky Beasley, Derek Beaulieu, Will Bradley, Jenny Brownrigg, Rosie Cooper, Kathryn Elkin, Chris Evans, Alec Finlay, Sarah Lowndes, Ewan Morrison, Audrey Reynolds, Steve Rushton, Kathrine Sowerby, Frances Stark, Nick Thurston, Cara Tolmie, Sarah Tripp, Emmett Walsh and Tirdad Zolghadr.

Submissions should be sent with a cover page detailing artist's/writer's name, address, telephone number, email address and a short CV to Submissions should be no more than 3000 words.
