Working with Words: Kailey Milks and Hub City Press

Graduating English major and Creative Writing Concentrator Kailey Milks has landed an extraordinary internship at Hub City Books in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Hub City is the award-winning non-profit independent press known across the country as a home for well-crafted, high-quality works by new and established authors, with an emphasis on the Southern experience. Kailey will be starting May 9th, just in time for Hub City’s 20th anniversary street party, and then working in their bookshop and office; in June and July, she’ll be helping with the press’s summer camp. She’ll also work with Hub City’s Writing in Place Summer Workshop in July, and working events at Converse College in June and July, one that will include lowcountry bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank.

Hub City Press publishes four to six books a year, and is distributed nationally by John F. Blair Co. in Winston-Salem, NC. Since 1995 they have published more than 65 books, including works by Ron Rash, George Singleton, Michel Stone, Susan Tekulve, Marjory Wentworth, John Lane, Elizabeth Cox, College of Charleston graduate Jon Sealy, Philip Gerard, Lee Zacharias, and Lilah Hegnauer.

Congratulations, Kailey!
