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 contests 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. In 2015, we will also be sponsoring a novel contest, open to all novelists, published and unpublished. (See Contests for guidelines.)

Since 2007, Longleaf has also accepted submissions from writers throughout the world and now publishes both full-length and chapbook length manuscripts. (Query first.)
