Mosaic Literary Magazine

Launched in 1998, Mosaic is a website and quarterly print magazine exploring the literary arts by writers of African descent. Each issue contains a unique blend of profiles, book reviews, and literature  lesson plans.

Mosaic is produced by the Literary Freedom Project, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt not-for-profit arts organization that supports the literary arts through education, creative thinking, and new media.

The Literary Freedom Project provides educators with literary arts lesson plans based on the content of each issue of Mosaic. Each plan uses the work by writers of African descent as a connective tool to a variety of subjects: history, social studies, and English. Our goal is to increase self awareness while promoting reading and strengthening literacy.

Lesson Plans
Mosaic supplements its editorial content with lesson plans that are developed based on the content of Mosaic. These lesson plans, developed for secondary school educators, demonstrate how Mosaic’s content can serve as a connective tool to explore educational subjects such as history and social studies while also serving to increase the importance of literature in the classroom

Mosaic Literary Conference
MLC provides a platform for literature-based creative thinking and knowledge sharing. Each year we invite educators, community and arts organizations, and artists to participate in various professional-development workshops.

Programs of the Literary Freedom Project are funded in part by the Bronx Council on the Arts, a JP Morgan Chase Re-grant, the New York State Council on the Arts, and Poets & Writers, Inc. through public funds from the New York State Department of Cultural Affairs. In-kind support provided by WNYC Radio
