  1. Greetings, I’ve just ordered the current issue of your magazine featuring articles by Ayana Mathis & William Melvin Kelley. Am I to understand that I will be receiving 3 copies of the same issue at a cost of $16.00 ? If so, no problem; just wasn’t clear on the 3 issue subscription notice.
    Looking forward to perusing your magazine.
    Thank you,

  2. Hello,

    First, thank you for subscribing, for believing. It will make a difference.

    Your subscription entitles you to the next three different issues Mosaic publishes –not three of the same issue. Your first issue was mailed this past Saturday and the next issues will pub in June and October. I hope this isn’t a curve ball.

    very best

  3. Is paypal the only way to pay for a subscription? I work at a university and would like to purchase the magazine for the library, if possible.

  5. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to take a look.

    I’m definitely loving the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Outstanding blog and great design and style.

  6. I am interested in the Literary Freedom project and teaching the arts program for an after school reading program. I have been a volunteer English tutor for years. I currently have an internet radio program where I share educational resources and the arts. I would like to expose our youth to these great literary giants as a means to encourage reading. What do I need to do in order to be a part of the Literary Freedom Project and bring it to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for the upcoming school year?
