This is the page to submit residency applications, manuscripts and query letters to Hub City Press. At certain times, this is also the place to submit to the New Southern Voices Poetry Prize and the Greenville/Spartanburg Writing Contest.
Please submit in the correct category!
The first winning book will be published in Spring 2019. This prize is made possible by an anonymous contribution from a South Carolina donor.
The new prize is open to emerging writers in thirteen Southern states. Submitters must currently reside in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or West Virginia, and must have no previously published books.
A $25 submission fee will accompany each submission. Submission information can be found at www.hubcity.org/cmcprize . Manuscripts will be taken through online submission only. All manuscripts will be read anonymously by paid screeners. This contest is guided by the CLMP Code of Ethics.
Please read the full guidelines before submitting.
This 15-week winter/spring residency will run from January 8, 2018 to April 27, 2018.
NOTE: we have added a category for those who have already applied for the Fall residency and want to apply for the winter for an extra ten dollars. These will be checked by the Hub City Staff and any erroneous entries will be declined with no refund. If you didn't apply for the fall residency before June 15, 2016, please check the $30 Winter Residency fee option.
