We are a nonprofit literary organization based in Springfield

, Illinois, home of our 16th U.S. president Abraham Lincoln. We are prou

d to serve central Illinois and have been doing so since 1993.

Our goal is to inspire and support the literary arts.

hed teens, their families and friends, and others around the world.
