Founded in Spartanburg, South Carolina in 1995, Hub City Press has emerged as the South's premier independent literary press.
Focused on finding and spotlighting new and extraordinary voices from the American South, the press has published over eighty high-caliber literary works, including novels, short stories, poetry, memoir, and books emphasizing the region's culture and history. Hub City is interested in books with a strong sense of place and is committed to introducing a diverse roster of lesser-heard Southern voices including: people of color, gender diversity, LGBTQIA, people with disabilities, as well as ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities. Hub City Press's recent successes include a Kirkus Best Book of the Year, an NPR Best Book of the Year, coverage in the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, as well blurbs from authors like Roxane Gay, Alexander Chee, John Jeremiah Sullivan, Lauren Groff, and Tim O’Brien. One of only three book publishers in the South funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, we are distributed to the trade by Publishers Group West. Our author's books have appeared on the Indiebound Indie Next List, as well as the Amazon Best Books of the Month, and O Magazine's Best Books of the Summer.
We are the publisher of the C. Michael Curtis Short Story Book Prize, a $10,000 prize, the South Carolina Novel Competition, and the New Southern Voices poetry book prize. In 2019, Hub City Press launched The Charles Frazier Cold Mountain Fund Series to amplify distinctive Southern voices and connect them with curious readers.
