The 2nd Hand: Call for entries

The evening of Friday, Sept. 7, THE2NDHAND, Birmingham and Chicago’s broadsheet and online magazine for new prose writing, will host a reading in downtown Birmingham featuring four showcased authors in conjunction with Birmingham’s Artwalk festival and juried show — at least one of those authors will be chosen by competition.

Birmingham- or area-based authors should:

  1. send stories 2,500 words or less in length;
  2. be comfortable performing them for an audience.

Winners will receive a $100 award, be published in a special Artwalk edition of THE2NDHAND, and participate in the Sept. 7 reading, with published authors from around the country. Please limit submissions to one or two stories per author. Join us.

Stories can be sent to in a double-space Word document or comparable file. Alternately, post to:

Todd Dills, Editor & Publisher
1827 First Ave. N. #301
Birmingham, AL 35203

For more info call 205-323-8037.

Be sure to include all pertinent contact information with each story, both in the document and in the body of your e-mail. Submissions will be accepted through June 30.
