Jenny Stevens Joins Board of Hub city Writers Project 349 E. Main Street, Suite 200, Spartanburg, SC 29302 • www.SCFamilyLaw.com • (864) 598-9172 August 2019

This month we’re proud to announce that Managing Partner Jenny Stevens has joined the Board of the Hub City Writers Project (HCWP). Jenny is a lifelong lover of books and has enjoyed working on creative writing projects since she first learned to write, so joining the Board of our local independent bookstore was a dream come true for her. If you’re not from Spartanburg or if you’ve just never heard of the Hub City Writers Project, here’s a little bit of their history. It all began back in 1995, when a trio of Spartanburg writers began to talk about how they could help preserve a sense of place in the rapidly changing small town they all loved. They decided to model the Hub City Writers Project after the Depression-era Federal Writers Project, choosing the name “Hub City” as an ode to Spartanburg’s past as a railroad center, and also because it would challenge them to make their city a “hub” for the literary arts. In the years since, the organization has published more than 700 writers and 80 books, renovated two historic downtown buildings, and given away more than $30,000 in scholarships to emerging writers. The bookstore (one of Jenny’s favorite places to shop!) has sold over 180,000 books and has provided creative writing instruction to hundreds of writers in the Carolinas and beyond. HCWP also hosts a writers’ conference called Writing in Place each summer at nearby Wofford College, which Jenny has attended (and thoroughly enjoyed) the past two years. Over the years, HCWP has made a true name for itself on the national level and continues to serve its community in so many wonderful ways. Jenny looks forward to her current term of three years on the Board and invites everyone to check out HCWP’s website at HubCity.org and Facebook page for all upcoming events where you’re sure to find her as well.
