We compute the M-theory corrections to the confining linear potential between a quark and an anti-quark in script N = 1 Super Yang-Mills theory. We find a constant term, and a term exponentially small with characteristic length of Λ-1QCD. The potential in the MQCD setup that corresponds to softly broken script N = 1 SYM is found to have a similar behavior.
