Program description: For nearly twenty years, Arts & Letters has attracted both emerging and well established writers, publishing the likes of R.T. Smith, Denise Duhamel, Donald Hall, Bret Lott, Maxine Kumin, Sonja Livingston, Opal Moore, Bob Hicok, Xu Xi, Lia Purpura, Marianne Boruch, and David Kirby.
Martin Lammon founded the journal in 1999 at Georgia College, where it continues to operate out of the MFA Program in Creative Writing. Under his guidance, Arts & Letters became a well-respected venue for poetry, fiction, and essays.
In 2015, Arts & Letters welcomed its second ever Editor, Laura Newbern, who stepped up from her post as Poetry Editor. Her 2010 collection of poetry, Love and the Eye, was selected by Claudia Rankine for the Kore Press First Book Award, and she is the recipient of a Writer’s Award from the Rona Jaffe Foundation.
The printed journal appears biannually, in Spring and Fall issues, with vibrant full-color covers designed by Peter Selgin.
