From the Woodley Press guidelines:

Woodley Press considers only Kansas authors' works for publication. Woodley Press specializes in fiction, poetry, drama, and literary nonfiction.

We prefer to work with authors of first books, for whom the book is an important step in a writing career. We rely heavily on the author's enthusiasm for the book, because almost all sales are generated by the author's promotion of the book through mailings (we'll pay), readings and book signings.
