At Southern Lit Alliance, we value literature because it:
  • Provides life-long learning
  • Improves critical thinking skills
  • Improves empathy for others
  • Educates on social issues
  • Is the most accessible art form as a creator or audience
  • Makes better writers
  • Provides cultural literacy

Help inspire children and adults to read and write
