April 2016

Manuscripts, Butler University's undergraduate literary magazine, won 3 awards at the Indiana Collegiate Press Association (ICPA) conference on April 9.

Congrats to the staff and faculty.

Manuscripts won first place in the category of Best Short Story, for a piece named “Grown-Ups” written by IUPUI student Olivia Emerich. The magazine also won first place in the category of Best Overall Design for designers Emily Yoo and Emily Farrer of Butler University. Manuscripts finished in third place in the category of Magazine of the Year.

Manuscripts has made a resurgence on Butler’s campus in the past two years, with the Spring 2015 issue being the biggest that Manuscripts has ever published.

“It was a challenging process to design a literary magazine from scratch–we spent so many hours choosing fonts alone,” Editor-in-Chief Emily Yoo said. “(Associate Editor) Emily Farrer and I both agree that it was an unforgettable learning experience, and that we wouldn’t have won an award without the support of our wonderful staff and faculty.”
