The Hub City Writers Project offers three ten- or fifteen-week residencies each year at the Writers House in Spartanburg, South Carolina for emerging writers who are pursuing a graduate degree in creative writing or have completed a college degree in creative writing within the past five years. The summer residency will take place from June 8 to August 14; the fall residency will take place from September 7 to December 18. The resident for each session is provided with lodging and a work studio in a historic downtown cottage and a $600 monthly stipend in exchange for 15 hours of community service with Hub City Press or Hub City Bookshop. Transportation and meals are not included. For the summer and fall residencies, submit a writing sample of 10 poems or a novel chapter, a short story, or an essay of up to 20 pages; a one-page project description, a résumé, contact info for two references, and a $30 application fee ($40 to apply to both residencies) by April 15.
