The Southern Lit Alliance's Celebration of Southern Literature (CSL) and Special Literary Events bring hundreds of readers and writers together to celebrate literature. The CSL alone reaches over 10,000 students through its Education Enrichment programs—the Young Southern Student Writers, Writers in Classrooms and Creative Writing Workshops for Teachers.

The Southern Lit Alliance (formerly the Arts & Education Council) celebrates Southern writers and readers through community education and innovative literary arts experiences. We do this through our programs, the Celebration of Southern Literature, Education Enrichment for children and through Special Literary Events.
With your help, we will continue these important learning opportunities for adults and children.
We sincerely appreciate your support. Thank you!
