News from The Republic of Letters
Edited by Keith Botsford
News from The Republic of Letters is literary broadsheet published jointly by The Republic of Letters and Sylph Editions. The journal was founded in 1997 by Saul Bellow and Keith Botsford and is published on a quarterly basis.
Each issue consists of texts from both new and established writers. These vary from full-length novellas to short texts called 'arias', and in the archives it prints texts from the past, often in new translations, that are either forgotten or unjustly neglected. There is no limitation as to form: lives includes biography and memoirs; plays and other forms of fiction and non-fiction are equally acceptable; as is poetry, though the magazine's bias is toward prose. The rear matter includes a full section on recent books, The Reader, and the Editor's column, PB's Notebook.
