Robert Maynor, Caucasian man with hat and beard/moustache

Join award-winning South Carolina writer Robert Maynor for a one-hour talk on first novels and the South.

Maynor lives and writes in a patched-up fish camp on the bank of the Edisto River, the longest free-flowing blackwater river in North America. His fiction explores the complexities and contradictions in the contemporary American South.

Critics call his first novel, The Big Game Is Every Night (Hub City Press, 2023), “a heartfelt story of ambition, family, and frustration.”

His short stories have appeared in Blood Orange Review, BULL, the Carolina Quarterly, and CRAFT, among other outlets.

His work has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and he is the past recipient of the Larry Brown Short Story Award and the Coker Fellowship in Fiction from the South Carolina Academy of Authors.
