Publications‎ > ‎


Statement is the journal of the Colorado Language Arts Society. As of January 2015, Statement is exclusively an on-line publication. Calls for submission are released twice a year, generally in late September and in late February. However, submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis.

The mission of Statement is to advance the teaching and learning of the English Language Arts in Colorado. While we welcome readership beyond the Centennial State and we encourage submissions from outside of Colorado, what makes our publication most relevant for our members is content that addresses the interests and issues of Colorado teachers.

See Write for Statement for information about how to contribute to this journal.

The Colorado Language Arts Society opposes discrimination against any person and promotes equal opportunities for access to its activities and publications.
