We bring together and lift up individuals and organizations that promote forms of the spoken, written, and sung word as a tool for personal and communal transformation.
Welcome to the Transformative Language Arts Network. We invite you to join us! As a community, we make space for and provide resources to people who use the power of language to help transform the world - the poets, journalists, writers, novelists, songwriters, playwrights, and other wordsmiths who show us beauty, open our minds to new and important ideas, and sometimes risk their very lives to speak truth to power.
At this moment, we are reminded of the power of words, especially in this time of rising challenges to democracy, attacks on our beloved BIPOC, Jewish, and LGBTQIA+ communities, political turmoil, and war and the climate crisis.
Our voices matter. Our words have power, and together, we can effect meaningful change by listening deeply to each other's stories, and telling the stories that need to be told.
We invite you to join us.
To the power of words,
We offer a certificate in Transformative Language Arts Foundations, an introduction to TLA in theory and practice with a focus on ethical work, community networking, and TLA in action. To learn more, go here.
