Longleaf Press is the literary press at Methodist
University. Each year, our writers are featured guests at
Methodist University's Southern Writers Symposium. We are
a non-profit press and depend upon grants, book sales, and
our annual chapbook contest to support our publishing efforts.
Each year, Longleaf Press sponsors a poetry
chapbook contest open to writers from the southeastern United
States who have not yet published a full-length poetry collection.
(See contest guidelines.)
Since 2007, Longleaf has also accepted submissions
from poets throughout the world and now publishes both full-length
and chapbook length manuscripts. (Query first.)
