SoLit

Inspiring children and adults to be passionate readers and writers.

 

Founded in 1952, SoLit has evolved into a literary arts hub for Chattanooga.  Previously known as Southern Lit Alliance, the mission is to deliver literary arts experiences that engage young people and adults in a life-long love of reading, writing, and community conversation. Each year, SoLit reaches 5,000 children and adults with programs such as literature festivals, writing workshops, book therapy groups, writing contests for children  and outreach to jails and youth in underserved communities.  We see literature has the incomparable power to inspire, connect, and uplift.  SoLit shares stories that matter.

- Educates on social issues

- Makes better writers
