State Lands Grant for Mississippi Writers Trail

The Mississippi Arts Commission, in partnership with the Community Foundation for Mississippi, Mississippi Humanities Council, Mississippi Book Festival, Mississippi Development Authority, Mississippi Department of Archives and History and the Mississippi Library Commission, is pleased to announce the creation of a Mississippi Writers Trail to honor the most acclaimed and influential writers throughout the Magnolia State.

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently developed a special grant program for state history and heritage projects that commemorate the 150th and 200th anniversaries of statehood and has awarded its very first Statehood Grant of $30,000 to support the creation of a Mississippi Writers Trail.
