The Interpreter Foundation is seeking volunteer source checkers. Source checkers are vital contributors who verify that the references in Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture publications are accurate. This is an ideal opportunity for students or others with access to a university library with a strong LDS-related collection. Volunteers will gain resume-building experience working on an online and printed journal. Source checkers must be available to work on one large article or two small articles per month. If you can help, please contact us using this contact form.
An adjustment has been made to the submission dates for the Ruth M. Stephens Article Prize. Any manuscript written by a woman and either submitted to or published by Interpreter since 18 June 2014 and before 1 August 2015 will be eligible for consideration. See the Ruth M. Stephens Article Prize page for more information.

More details will be announced as they become available.
We’re approaching Christmas and the end of 2014. It seems appropriate, therefore, to thank all those whose generous donations of time, energy, and money have made the accomplishments of The Interpreter Foundation possible. We’re deeply and humbly grateful. We know that you owe us and the Foundation nothing whatever, and we’re genuinely moved by the support that our work has received.
I also wish to report on the current status of The Interpreter Foundation, and, candidly, to encourage further support, in whatever form, from those able to give it. Some of you, I expect, will be thinking about year-end charitable deductions this month. There are many extremely worthy causes for you to support; we hope that you’ll keep Interpreter in mind.
