As we near what may be the end of our 43 years of broadcasting, we look back at our decades of publishing the National Magazine Award-winning New Letters, the American Book Award-winning BkMk (BookMark) Press, and the radio show, New Letters on the Air. Our shared mission to discover, publish, and promote the best new writing, wherever it may be found, is apparent in our audio archives, that go back to 1977. Robert Stewart, Ben Furnish and Angela Elam share stories of collaboration with clips from Jericho Brown, Michael Horovitz, Dan Jaffe, Mariko Nagai, Richard Wilbur, Billy Collins, and Christie Hodgen. Listen as we explore our literary operation, located in the University House on the UMKC campus.
