We are an Illinois nonprofit organization based in Springfield, land of our 16th U.S. president, Abraham Lincoln. We are proud to serve central Illinois and have been doing so since 1993. Our goal is to inspire and support the literary arts. For the past fifteen years, our annual teen poetry anthology, Navigating the Maze, has reached teens, their families and friends, and others around the world. Thanks to the Vachel Lindsay Association for its continued support.
