Here’s a list of possible sources to get things started — if you have additional sources, link to them in the comments section or e-mail me at my first name AT motleyvision DOT org and I’ll update the list. Individual authors and various and sundry publications may have isolated stories here and there — entries to the form don’t have to be from the list below.
BYU Library Digital Collections (I’m not going to break them all out, but there may be creative writing master’s theses, stories from the 19th and 20th century Mormon publications collections, etc.)
Thanks, and I hope that all of you will participate. A few folks have been doing all the work for Short Story Friday. I know there are some AMV readers with a special interest in poetry by or about Mormons — point us to your favorites.
And now to kick things off:
In 1975 the LDS Church publication for teenagers — The New Era — published an article called Mormon Poets Talk about Their Craft featuring an thoughts from Arthur Henry King, Clinton Larson, Elouise Bell, Richard Cracroft, Emma Lou Thayne, Carol Lynn Pearson, John S. Harris and Elder S. Dilworth Young. Pretty impressive line up there. What do you think about what they have to say?
