        ASAIL NOTES is a quarterly newsletter (March, May, October, December) produced under the auspices of ASAIL (The Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures). Its exclusive purpose is to exchange information of interest to those involved in creating and commenting upon Native American literature. ASAIL NOTES will restrict itself to news/ announcements/queries of the kind indicated by the contents of this issue. In this way it will complement the excellent job of review and commentary currently in the hands of SAIL: Studies in American Indian Literature (ed.: Karl Kroeber, Department of English, 602 Philosophy Hall, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027.)
        ASAIL is an informal association of scholars and writers, which meets with the Modern Language Association's annual meeting. It sponsors two sessions at the MLA annual meeting (see ANNOUNCEMENTS),the newsletter ASAIL NOTES, and SAIL. Its members are also active in organizing sessions for regional MA meetings (see CALLS FOR PAPERS). It is distinct from the Discussion Group on American Indian Literature of the MLA, but many individuals frequently belong to both groups. Current ASAIL officers are:

        Past-President:   Elaine Jahner, English, University of Nebraska, Lincoln,NB
        President:           Paul Zolbrod, English, Allegheny College, Meadville, PA
        President-Elect: Andrew Wiget, English, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces,NM

ASAIL NOTES comes to you at no cost, thanks to the support of the Department of English, NMSU. If it is to effectively serve as a clearinghouse for information of Interest to its readers, your active participation is required. In submitting information make sure that all that is required for a prompt and full response by our readers is included (deadlines, locations, addresses/phone numbers for response, complete bibliographic information [MLA Style], and so on). We especially want to involve creative writers by including reading schedules for poets and fiction writers, announcements of group readings, and news concerning publications and awards or other kinds of public recognition. In this way we can increase public awareness (and perhaps audiences!).


        From time to time, this heading will call attention to organizations or sources of information which might be of interest to anyone concerned with Native American oral or written literatures.

        In this column we would like to feature the itineraries of poets/fiction writers who are travelling to give readings. It often happens that if someone is in your area you may be able to arrange on short notice a reading (and save some travel expenses) or one can publicize the fact that a writer is reading nearby and help build the audience. We would like to encourage writers who have their itineraries planned to pass this information along to our readership through this column . . . . .
        Wendy Rose, Simon Ortiz, Luci Tapahonso and Bill Oandasan will be reading at Long Beach State and University of California-Riverside on May 12, doing a mini-conference on Indian literature at UCLA all day on May 13, and another reading on May 14, this time at the Southwest Museum . . .

United States Scholarship will feature monographic and article-length commentary upon Native American writing and oral traditions. International Scholarship will report publication of materials of interest from outside the United States, including original scholarship and translations of Native American writing; these entries will carry the initials of the field editor contributing them. Our readers are strongly encouraged to submit bibliographic notices to the Editor for inclusion in this column.
