The University of South Carolina Press publishes works of original scholarship in the fields of history (American, African American, Southern, Civil War, culinary, maritime, and women's), regional studies, literature, religious studies, and rhetoric. USC Press also publishes regional general interest titles addressing the art, architecture, culture, fiction, gardening, and outdoors of the American South.

To have a project considered by USC Press, submit materials in hard copy or as e-mail attachments in Word and include the following:
1. A cover letter that briefly describes the work (scope, purpose, and length), explains how it differs from competing works, and assesses its likely readership.
2. If the work is a completed manuscript, a table of contents and representative chapter (not the entire manuscript); otherwise, a detailed prospectus.
3. A current curriculum vitae or résumé.
4. Before final approval for contract all projects will undergo rigorous, anonymous peer review and endorsement by the University of South Carolina Press Committee, made up of USC faculty members.

Submissions should be sent to:
