Manuscript Society Seeks Submissions

The Manuscript Society is Wilkes University’s on-campus literature and art magazine, fully run by students.

We at Manuscript seek to foster a supportive and ever-growing creative writing community here at Wilkes, and our submissions are open.

For more information, please watch our promotional video.

Our submission period opened Sept. 13, and will run through April 2.

For our Black History Month issue, we will hold submissions open until Feb. 4.

If you’re interested, please submit your work to magazine@wilkes.edu with your Wilkes email (so we know you’re affiliated with Wilkes) and specify which issue, if not both, you want to be a part of. 

Our submissions go through a blind submission process, meaning no one in the room will know it’s your work unless it is accepted and published with your permission. We do not accept anonymous submissions.

  • A maximum of five pages of double-spaced text, five poems or five images per submitter.
  • Please include title of each piece clearly at the top of the page or as the file name.
  • Please submit files as .doc or .docx format, or .jpeg or .png for images and graphics.
  • Do not include your name or any identifying information within the document.
If you have any further questions, please reach out to us at magazine@wilkes.edu, or contact us on social media!
