    • Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to other publishers or contests are acceptable but please notify Hub City Press by email ([email protected]) if your manuscript has been accepted elsewhere.

    • While translations and manuscripts in languages other than English are not acceptable, manuscripts that occasionally use words from other languages are perfectly fine.

    • No revisions of submitted manuscripts will be allowed during the contest.

    • Hub City Press asks that you do NOT include bio or acknowledgements page with your manuscript since all manuscripts will be read anonymously by our readers, editors, and judge.

    • Manuscripts should include two title pages. One should include title, author’s name and contact information (this should be the only page that includes the author’s name). The other should have the manuscript’s title only.

    • All physical manuscripts should be typed on standard white paper, printed on one side only, paginated (with table of contents), and bound with a single clip.

    • If mailing your manuscript, please include a check for $25 made to Hub City Press, or a receipt of a Paypal payment below. Address: New Southern Voices, Hub City Press, 186 West Main St., Spartanburg SC 29306.
