The Mosaic Literary Conference provides a platform for literature-based creative thinking and knowledge sharing. Each year we invite educators, community and arts organizations, as well as the public to participate in a variety of workshops. Past conferences.


The Literary Freedom Project is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit arts organization that seeks to restore the importance of reading books as an essential tool for creating intelligent, productive, and engaged young people. Towards this goal, LFP presents One Book One Bronx; publishes Mosaic Literary Magazine; develops literature-based lesson plans; and hosts the Mosaic Literary Conference, an annual literature-education event. We invite educators, community organizers, and parents to take part in our programs.

This event is made possible with donations and public funds from the Bronx Council on the Arts through the New York State Council on the Arts, Humanities New York, and the Citizens Committee for New York. Additional support provided by the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
