The annual Hub City/Emrys Creative Writing Prize in Fiction has been awarded to Bob Strother in fiction. The contest, sponsored by the Hub City Writers Project and the Emrys Foundation, is open to adults in Greenville and Spartanburg counties.
Bob Strother of Greenville has published more than 60 short stories and his collection, Scattered, Smothered, and Covered, was published in 2011 by Main Street Rag Publishing Company. Of his winning story, the judge said, “‘Traveling Mercies’ had me hooked from the first sentence … I thought it a very satisfying story.”
Second place in fiction went to Sonja Coppenbarger of Greenville and the third place winner was Kam Neely of Spartanburg.
Strother, Coppenbarger, and Neely will read at the Hub City Bookshop on Wednesday, May 2 at 6 p.m. This is a free event and the public is invited.
