The Association for Mormon Letters (AML) is a nonprofit founded in 1976 to promote quality writing “by, for, and about Mormons.” The broadness of this definition of Mormon literature has led the AML to focus on a wide variety of work that has sometimes been neglected in the Mormon community. The AML sponsors an annual scholarly symposium and publishes the papers presented there in the AML Annual. The AML has also sponsored writers’ conferences.
The AML published the literary journal Irreantum from 1999 to 2013, and back issues are being posted online. The AML has sponsored the literature blog Dawning of a Brighter Day since 2009.
