THE MAGNOLIA LITERACY PROJECT (MLP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that uses literacy as a means of celebrating Mississippi while promoting activism and advocacy across the state. The organization's mission is to offer a platform for young Mississippians to showcase literary talent, build identity, and represent community. Our goal is to provide youth with cultural enrichment, mentoring, and publishing opportunities while teaching multimodal literacy. Empowering writers, visual artists, orators, photographers, and videographers, we serve communities that lack widespread access to growth resources.
