Faulkner Newsletter & Yoknapatawpha Review ceases publication after 20 years

March 20, 2002

OXFORD, Miss. — A quarterly newsletter devoted to Nobel Prize-winning writer William Faulkner has ceased publication after a 20-year run.

The Faulkner Newsletter & Yoknapatawpha Review, which began publication in 1981, has ceased publication as of its October 2001 issue, according to a notice on the Yoknaptawpha Press web site, which published the newsletter.

Edited by William Boozer and published by Lawrence Wells and Dean Faulkner Wells, William Faulkner’s niece, the newsletter covered a variety of news and information about the life, the writings, and the places associated with William Faulkner.

A total of 80 issues were published during the publication’s two decades. In 1994, a bound edition of the first 54 issues was published, along with an index, under the title The Faulkner Newsletter: Collected Issues. According to the publisher’s web site, plans are underway to produce a similar index for the remaining 26 issues, though the publication date is not yet available.

A limited number of back issues are available from the publisher at $10.00 per issue.

On the web page announcing the cessation of publication, the newsletter staff “expresses regret that its publication must cease, along with their gratitude to longtime subscribers for loyal support and encouragement.”
