An Invitation to Chat with an Editor
Submitted by mwidner on Tue, 2012-10-23 13:20
MLA members—especially graduate students and junior faculty—are 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 any editor identified, by emailing Chat Coordinator Richard Kopley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
