What is the purpose of LEGG?

This mission is served by providing support for quality literary arts events throughout the state, and especially in underserved communities. Fulton, Cobb, and Dekalb counties are excluded from the LEGG program at this time, since funds are limited and those counties are currently being served by Poets &Writers readings.
