Our mission is to provide exceptional lyric writing for readers of all ages, viewpoints, and religious persuasions. We want both young and old to hear the beauty of lyricism and, as a result, learn to love language as much as we do. Any donations are appreciated and will be put toward publication costs: printing, website maintenance, author payments, contributor copies, and advertising.
