The Georgia Journal of Literacy is the biannual, peer-reviewed, open-access publication of the Georgia Association of Literacy Advocates (GALA). We publish research- and practitioner-based articles related to language and literacy education at all educational levels. We welcome the voices of all literacy advocates, from literacy scholars/researchers, P–12 classroom teachers and school leaders, and graduate students.

More about GALA, including who we are, what we do, current events and initiatives, and membership can be found at:
