Introducing a new literary magazine: 2nd and Church

Dear writers:

2nd and Church went live on the Web today!

From the website:

“Welcome to 2nd & Church, a literary journal by, for, and about writers and readers throughout Tennessee. Our goal is to be inclusive of many different types of writers and writing: creative nonfiction, technical writing, literary fiction, poetry, translation, commercial fiction.”

You can buy paper copies from the website.

Once on the site, click on the MagCloud link. If you buy a paper copy, you get a free digital copy as a PDF. 

And even if you don't buy a paper copy, you can download a free digital version!

2nd and Church will be launching tonight at Literary Libations at Union Station Hotel. We're meeting in the bar under the portrait of Jack Nicholson from 5:30-7:30 - Literacy Libations (#litlib) is free, casual and congenial, and there is valet parking at the hotel for $3.

On a more personal note, I am honored to be a cover feature along with my dear friend and fellow author River Jordan. Paige Crutcher interviewed me and I interviewed River, so this first issue is a wee bit incestuous, but in a good way. Plus there are tons of features and stories, so it is well worth checking out.

I am so excited about 2nd and Church, and not just because we're featured, but because it is a testament to the literary renaissance Nashville is undergoing. Roy Burkhead, editor of 2nd and Church, has worked tirelessly for months to put this together. His vision is astounding, and all Tennessee writers will benefit from his hard work. 

So thank you, Roy. From all of us to you - Bravo!
