The Manuscript Society of Wilkes University has been publishing its creative written and visual art magazine, Manuscript, continuously since 1947. Currently, the student-led editorial staff publishes two issues a year, and copies are complimentary.
In preparation for a career in editing, publishing, or creative writing, any Wilkes student is welcome to submit to or work on the editorial board of the Manuscript Society and critique a variety of creative pieces, including visual art, from the Wilkes faculty, staff, students, and alumni. This process includes creative workshopping, copyediting, and layout. Recently, the Society produced a hardback edition of the Fall 2008 issue and a woodblock cover design in Spring 2009.
Wilkes students may elect to enroll in ENG 390. Projects in Writing: Manuscript for one (1) credit of coursework. Meetings are held during club hours each semester. Monthly campus poetry readings are open to the Wilkes community and greater public. The end product is a published, award-winning magazine.
Faculty advisors to the Manuscript Society are English Department faculty Drs. Sean Kelly and Mischelle Anthony.
