Chrysalis Journal

Journal of Transformative Language Arts

Chrysalis is an online, peer-reviewed, international journal that publishes critical, creative, and reflective work on the use of language arts to create personal and community change.

Dedicated to the research and practice of Transformative Language Arts (TLA), it is a foundational resource for those who are currently studying or practicing TLA; for those interested in the power of the spoken, written, and sung word to engender change in both the reader and the writer; and for those who seek to discover that power.

Chrysalis is currently on haitus, but it remains a rich resource for TLArtists. We invite you to enjoy these articles centered around TLA in process, practice and theory!
