New Letters quarterly and its audio companion, New Letters on the Air, are part of a national literary tradition that serves readers and writers across the world. On this Web site, you can search for a particular poem, story or essay from the past 70 years of New Letters or its previous title, The University Review. You can search the database of over 7,500 poems, stories, and essays from over 120 back issues. New Letters actively maintains a calendar of literary events and readings in the Kansas City region, as well as information about our international writing contests and two summer writing workshops. New Letters will continue to seek the best new writing, whether from established writers or from those just ready to be discovered; and it will support those writers, readers and, yes, listeners, who want to experience the joy of writing that both surprises and inspires us all.
