The Manuscript is Carleton's biannual literary and art magazine. We regularly publish Winter Term and Spring Term, frequently have meetings throughout the year to discuss submissions, and sporadically host writing workshops and open mic nights at the Cave. We'd love for you to get involved! If you'd like to come to meetings or know more about the magazine, please contact Julian Hast (hastj).

Submission Guidelines

We accept submissions in all genres and media — we're receptive to pretty much anything that goes on paper. Send us your poems, stories, creative nonfiction, plays, drawings, paintings, photos, images of three-dimensional artwork. Submissions are read and reviewed anonymously, but please include titles and author names for all pieces, and media for submissions of visual art. Word documents and JPGs appreciated. Send your work to carletonmanuscript @ gmail.com. Thanks!
