A fusion of two prominent community organizations, Literacy Mid-South originally combined the individual, direct service of the Memphis Literacy Council with the citywide campaigns and community resources of Mid-South Reads. Using these initial goals as building blocks, the organization expanded to be the hub of literacy in the Mid-South by providing resources and training to organizations, schools, churches, community groups, and individuals. Programs are structured to combat the lack of educational resources throughout Memphis both at the individual and community level. In the few short years since its inauguration, Literacy Mid-South has become the core collaborator for literacy and education in the Memphis community.
Our primary focuses are literacy and education. To that end, we have held an annual convention in Memphis, TN for over two decades hosting numerous authors, editors, scientists, and artists. We also hold a free writers' conference with workshops by award winning authors and editors.
MidSouthCon is presented by Mid-South Science and Fictions Conventions Inc. a non-profit type 501(c)(3) Corporation. Donations are welcome (and are tax deductible).
