Dialogue Starts Website, Resumes Publication
Kent Larsen 11Apr00 A4

SHAKER HEIGHTS, OHIO -- The LDS Journal Dialogue is now represented on the Internet, and has resumed publication following a recent move to Ohio. The well-known LDS Journal, founded in 1966 by a group that included LDS author and former BYU professor Eugene England and now LDS Apostle Dallin Oaks, is using the web to let the public know more about it and preview the table of contents of current issues.

The website is located at also includes information about coming issues, submission guidelines, contact information for the editors and information about subscribing and getting copies of past issues. On-line subscribing isn't yet available.

Dialogue's publication was delayed last year when the editors, Neal and Rebecca Chandler moved to Shaker Heights, Ohio, near Cleveland and Kirtland. Since the move, the Chandlers have managed to publish both the Spring and Summer 1999 issues, and say that the Fall 1999 issue will be mailed soon. They say that they anticipate catching-up soon and without any sacrifice of quality.

The upcoming Fall 1999 issue is particularly noteworthy, since it has been guest-edited by BYU professors Gideon Burton and Neal Kramer, who are also on the board of the Association for Mormon Letters. The issue is devoted to creative works by LDS authors and critical perspectives on Mormon literature.

Dialogue joins BYU Studies as the only academic journals that cover Mormonism on the World Wide Web. Sunstone is not yet on the web. Few other print magazines devoted to Mormonism can be found on the Web. The nascent Latter-day Sports has been on the web since its inception, and the now defunct This People magazine also had a website. The LDS Church's Church Magazines, the Ensign, New Era and Friend, are also not on the web.
