Covid 19 Hits the Arts

Help Southern Lit Alliance continue their literary and cultural legacy

Arts organizations, like Southern Lit Alliance, have been financially damaged by the pandemic.  Giving Tuesday Now is an effort to raise money for non-profits hard hit by the effects of the deadly COVID 19.


Now more than ever we need the arts in our lives to comfort, distract and help us express ourselves during difficult times.  Literature has the incomparable power to uplift, connect and inspire.

Much of our income comes from our events with authors and fundraisers.  It is not possible to host large events for the foreseeable future but we are planning on rescheduling our SouthWord Festival to Oct. 30 & 31 and have moved other events.   In the meantime, we have worked to continue our mission through more creative means such as virtual author interviews and virtual summer creative writing camps.


You have supported our mission to create passionate readers and writers.  We continue to work on improving critical thinking skills and the life-long learning literature provides. Now we need donors like you to help us bridge to the future of a  more normal world we look forward to, We would greatly appreciate your donations to help us continue to meet our mission and sustain us in the future.  Thank you so much.
