About AML

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.

3 Thoughts on “About AML

  1. Hi, Friends at AML. I have recently published a new book, The Ghost of Eternal Polygamy: haunting the hearts and heaven of Mormon women and men.

    Greg Prince says: “…Carol Lynn Pearson has hit a home run in her quest to illuminate both the damage that Mormonism’s de-facto practice of polygamy continues to inflict, and the route to a better, more humane place.”

    May I send a copy of the book to someone in your organization for a review?

    Much thanks for your good work.

    I have completed editing of an excellent biography of Earl Glade, Salt Lake City’s first mayor to be ever reelected. He also was a broadcast pioneer instrumental in laying the groundwork of much of KSL’s early radio programming. Glade, who also was an active Mormon, was mayor during the 1940s and 1950s. I am looking for suggestions as to possible small house presses and publishers who would be interested in a book about an important yet seldom known figure who is credited for pushing Salt Lake City into the modern age. The emphasis is clearly on his civic and political contributions.
