Overhead wiring

Hi all,

I am rewiring a shed 30' from the house which, due to a ridiculous amount of tree rootage, was done by the previous owners using overhead wiring, though not done well. I would like to keep the overhead wiring, but I want to make sure it's done correctly. What type of wire should I use (connecting to 12-2) and what are the specs for suspending it?

Additional info: it will be feeding two lights, 3 outlets and an outside motion detecting light.

Thanks in advance for the help!
