Student Opportunities & Publications

The Manuscript

Each spring, the student staff of The Manuscript publish a literature and art magazine that features the poetry, short fiction, essays, photographs, drawings, and other related artwork of Moravian University students and members of the college community. Students who are interested in working on The Manuscript are urged to join the staff through sign-ups at the Organization Fair held each Fall, or to contact the editors or faculty adviser of the magazine early in the Fall semester. Calls for submissions are usually announced each semester in order to attract a wide variety of literature and art submissions. The editor and staff evaluate and select what will be included in the magazine.  

Prof. Liz Gray advises The Manuscript.

The Comenian is established for the purposes of reporting news and other information relevant to the campus, providing a forum for discussion among students as well as faculty, giving students training and experience in the field of journalism, and providing an environment where any student interested in journalism can learn and grow. Our goal is to prepare students for the requirements of journalistic endeavors while cultivating humanism, professionalism, and ethical behavior.
