scottandlaurieThe TLA Network is a gathering place, a healing ground, a place of greater vision and wider perspective that supports individuals and organizations in promoting all forms of the spoken, written and sung word as a tool for personaland community transformation. To learn about some of the folks that are within our membership, a great place to look is at the TLA Member Map and our Member Pages.

The overall benefit of belonging to the TLA Network is the community you experience in being part of growing TLA and the power of words to transform, uplift, heal and celebrate — in the world. You also can more directly help us to develop right livelihood resources, networking opportunity, and resources to help sustain TLA as a way to make a living and contribute to your community.
