AN INVITATION TO CHAT WITH AN EDITOR AT MLA CONVENTION 2014

MLA members—especially graduate students and junior faculty—are again invited to chat with a journal editor at the MLA Convention. This opportunity is provided at each MLA Convention by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.

The “Chat with an Editor” may address submission to academic journals in general or submission to one academic journal in particular. Topics may range from understanding the review process to responding to the editor’s letter about a submission. The “Chat” is intended to be a form of professional mentoring, one that will strengthen academic careers.

The schedule of the “Chat with an Editor” is listed below. Those interested may sign up for a twenty-minute slot, with an editor identified, by emailing Chat Coordinator Richard Kopley at rxk3 AT psu DOT edu.
