About Us

Chrysalis Journal was founded in 2014 as the official journal of the Transformative Language Arts (TLA) Network, thanks to the efforts of founding editor Amber Ellis and other volunteers. There are three released annual issues available in our archives.

The editorial collective now consists of Iris Madelyn, Roy Ringel, Kao Kue, Melissa Rose, and Barbara Burt.

The TLA Network is a 501(c)3 non-profit that helps bring together and empower individuals and organizations that promote forms of the spoken, written, and sung word as a tool for personal and communal transformation, known as Transformative Language Arts.
