The CCA (Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow) is launching a new quarterly publication dedicated to creative writing. Edited by Francis McKee and Louise Shelley, each issue will feature new work, as well as work commissioned specially for the publication.
I’m currently working with the CCA as part of an audience development internship, helping get their message out to as wide an audience as possible. The new publication, which is called ‘2HB‘ is one of the CCA’s innovative side-projects, and the first issue will be launched officially on the 7th March 09. The publication is a totally new project and has arisen from the editors’ own interests in creative writing.
Submissions from interested writers are welcomed. The selection process will focus on creative writing or fiction with a critical awareness or issues. Subjects for future issues include eroticism, sci-fi, philosophical fiction, art as writing and detective fiction, but work beyond these suggestions will be considered.
So far the response has been fantastic, with artists and writers keen to get involved with this project, and excited by the concept. It makes my work so enjoyable to be involved in such an interesting and creative project.
