Over the last two decades, the Hub City Writers Project has become the South's premier literary organizations through its independent press, community bookshop and diverse literary programming. Based in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Hub City champions and supports Southern writers at every level and seeks to bring stories of Southern experience to a national audience. Hub City also provides educational scholarships, a national residency program, a book drive that places 4,000 books in low-income local homes, and hosts about 100 readings, workshops and other public events each year. Many of these events take place in the Hub City Bookshop, opened in 2010 and recently named by Southern Living as "One of the South's Best Bookstores."
Hub City Writers Project began as a press, and that remains our heart and soul. We publish six to ten books each year, and our titles are distributed nationally by Publishers Group West.
Whatever amount, whatever frequency you can give, your generosity will help Hub City Writers Project continue to nurture writers and cultivate readers here in Spartanburg and across the entire South.
Become a member of the Hub City Writers Project by supporting our organization with your tax-deductible donation. Our basic $30 membership provides discounts of 10-25% on all merchandise in the Hub City Bookshop, as well as discounts on our workshops and conferences.
If you would like to be part of Hub City's mission, we hope you'll consider donating.
