The Association for Mormon Letters (AML) is a nonprofit founded in 1976 to "foster scholarly and creative work in Mormon letters and to promote fellowship among scholars and writers of Mormon literature." Other organization mottos have included the promotion of quality writing "by, for, and about Mormons." and promoting the "production and study of Mormon literature." 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 association holds an annual conference, usually held in Utah. Proceedings of the conferences were published until 2004. From 1995 to 2010 the AML sponsored AML-List, an e-mail list for the discussion of Mormon literature. List subscribers posted reviews of thousands of Mormon books, films, and other artistic works, which are archived in the association's review database. AML has also published the literary journal Irreantum in 1999-2013 and 2018- and the blog Dawning of a Brighter Day since 2009.
