Manuscripts is Butler’s annual undergrad literary magazine. We publish students’ creative work—anything from poetry and short stories to photographs and paintings. We want to showcase a variety of artists, a variety of art, and a variety of styles. Manuscripts is not only for English majors; anyone who is an undergraduate student of any Indiana college can submit his/her work. All are welcome and encouraged to submit!
