THE2NDHAND was founded in Chicago in 2000 and features new short writing from working authors across the U.S. The broadsheet enjoys distribution of approx. 2500–3000 copies in several metropolitan regions via independent bookstores and affiliate organizations, and accompanies live reading series in Chicago, Nashville, and occasionally elsewhere. Since 2000, we’ve fostered an inclusive mix of seasoned practitioners, insurgent experimentalists, and wild-hare audiences with a perennial indie-lit favorite.
