Dear TLA Community:

At this moment in history, we are reminded yet again about the power of words, especially in this time of escalating war and the climate crisis. 

We honor the poets, journalists, writers, novelists, song writers, playwrights and other wordsmiths who risk their very lives to speak truth to power around the world - our voices matter, our words have power, and we can effect meaningful change by listening deeply to each other's stories, and speaking our truths.

Consider sharing your gifts, skills, and knowledge, and apply to present a workshop at our annual Power of Words Conference, online this fall from October 13-16. This intimate and experiential conference will provide unique opportunities to hone skills, build community, and find voice. 

Using the power of words to address the biggest issues of our time, this year's conference features keynote poets Pádraig Ó Tuama and Camille Dungy, and Kathleen Adams. 

Register now to get the Power of Words conference Early Bird rate, now extended through June 30!

In peace,  


Hanne Weedon

Managing Director
