Editorial Focus

Established in 2005, YellowJacket Press (YJP) is an independent small poetry press and currently the only publisher of poetry chapbook manuscripts in Florida. YJP sponsors the annual YellowJacket Press Chapbook Contest for Florida Poets (OCT-DEC) and the Annual Peter Meinke Prize (summer). Renowned across the state, YJP identifies the state’s most vital and vibrant poets and brings their exhilarating, well-crafted poems to the public eye.

Tips From the Editor

We celebrate Florida's poets and poetry lovers by publishing poetry chapbooks through statewide contests for Florida poets. Manuscripts should be no longer than 24 pages, including title page, table of contents, dedications and acknowledgments. See website for details on each contest.
