About This Journal
Manuscripts—or The MSS, as it was called in the beginning—published its first volume in the fall of 1933. The then quarterly magazine which featured almost entirely written work with a few woodblock prints, sold for 15 cents a copy.
Since the first issue, Manuscripts has published over a hundred issues and has evolved into the free, annual, and award-winning magazine that publishes the work of Butler students each year. Starting the fall of 2014, Manuscripts is accepting submissions from any Indiana undergraduate students.
