Literature fosters connection, builds empathy, sparks hope and inspiration, generates critical thought and conversation, and helps us experience the full, vibrant range of human emotion.

Lit Literary Collective is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2016 with the mission of helping our community flourish by supporting, engaging, and inspiring the literary arts in the larger Michiana area. We serve creators and patrons of the literary arts primarily through event programming, including (but not limited to!) workshops, panels, craft talks, book launch parties, and our regular reading series, Write Night. We also promote the events of other local literary organizations, making Lit Literary a one-stop shop for your local literary needs!

Because we consider widely-accessible cultural events paramount to a vibrant, engaged community, so we’re strongly committed to keeping all our events free of charge. And because we know the value of art, we pay our Write Night readers for their time and talent.

Now get out there and MAKE GOOD ART!
