Hub City Press is a non-profit independent press in Spartanburg, SC that publishes well-crafted, high-quality works by new and established Southern authors. We are committed to high-caliber novels, short stories, poetry, memoir, and works emphasizing regional culture and history. We are particularly interested in books with a strong sense of place.
Hub City Press publishes four to six books a year, and our titles are distributed nationally by John F. Blair Co. in Winston-Salem, NC. We are funded by the South Carolina Arts Commission and hundreds of donors across South Carolina. We are the publisher of the biennial South Carolina First Novel Competition, whose 2014 judge was novelist Ben Fountain, and the New Southern Voices poetry book prize, whose 2015 judge is poet C.D. Wright.
