Hi there, Palmetto State writers. Take the weekend to polish up those manuscripts, because the deadline to enter the S.C. Novel Prize is in just about two weeks!
Submissions close March 15, 2018. South Carolina Novel Prize entries are submitted online through the Submittable system.
The contest is highly competitive. Applicants’ works are reviewed anonymously by panelists who make their judgments on the basis of artistic merit. Six to eight novels will be judged by a nationally recognized judge to be announced at a later date.
The winning author will receive a book contract with Hub City Press, an award-winning independent press in Spartanburg, S.C. Winner is awarded publication by Hub City Press in the form of a printing of no less than 2,000 copies to be nationally distributed to the trade in 2019. This can bring recognition that may open doors to other resources and opportunities in the literary community.
Brock Adams of Spartanburg won the 2016 First Novel Prize. His novel, Ember, was published by Hub City Press in September 2017.
