full name / name of organization: 
The Council of Editors of Learned Journals
contact email: 

This is an invaluable opportunity for MLA members—especially advanced doctoral candidates and junior faculty—to develop their work for publication by meeting with editors from some of the top journals in the discipline, including PMLA, Canadian Literature, Comparative Literature Studies, Modernism/Modernity, MELUS, and Narrative among others.

The "Chat with an Editor" session may be used to discuss submission to a particular academic journal or address wider questions about submission and academic writing. 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 scholarly publication and academic career progression.

The schedule of the "Chat with an Editor" is listed below, and is available online at: http://www.celj.org/node/15148

Those interested can sign up for a twenty-minute slot with an editor by emailing the Chat Coordinator, Dr. Graham MacPhee, at: gmacphee@wcupa.edu
