Welcome to 2nd & Church
Where America's Writers Read
Roy Burkhead is the founding editor and publisher of 2nd & Church, a literary journal that celebrates writers, poets, and readers throughout the United States. The journal's goal is to be inclusive of many different types of writers and writing, including creative nonfiction, technical writing, literary fiction, W4C, poetry, translation, and commercial fiction.
What does it mean for a writer or reader to live (or even attempt to live) a life of fine arts, especially in the 21st century? Where can writers and readers go, either alone or in groups? What do they choose to write and read about? Which experiences make it from their lives to the pages? How are writers engaged, entertained, and provoked? And in turn, how do those writers engage, entertain, and provoke via their words and phrases?
These are some of the questions we seek to answer when selecting work for publication in 2nd & Church.
