The Key West Literary Seminar's audio archives contain more than 20 years of unique presentations by some of the world's most influential writers. The best of these recordings are now being digitized and released online in .mp3 format for use by educators, students, and readers worldwide. To be notified when new recordings are issued, connect with us via email, become our fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or subscribe via iTunes or your preferred RSS reader.

Recordings are produced for the web by Arlo Haskell, with recording and engineering services provided by Private Ear Recording Studios. Please contact arlo [at] kwls [dot] org with any questions, concerns, or special requests.

Each January, we explore a different literary theme through lectures, panel presentations, readings, informal gatherings, and discussions. In January 2011, we explore food in literature with our 29th annual Seminar, THE HUNGRY MUSE
