How to Submit an Article for MLAConnect

MLA Members Want to Hear from You!

If you’re not familiar with MLAConnect, it is the weekly newsletter of the latest MLA blog articles, updates, upcoming events, and more. Update the email preferences section of your MLANET profile, so you don’t miss the next issue. The MLAConnect newsletter is sent to subscribed members every Thursday.

We love to hear from members and want to share your projects, accomplishments, and items of interest that you find useful. In general, articles are between 500–700 words, they are informative more than research driven, and, most importantly, they are timely. Editors are available to assist you with questions and help coordinate timing for articles.

MLAConnect will gladly publish announcements that you would like to share with the wider MLA membership. Have you found yourself sending the same message to multiple caucus listservs? Save yourself time by sending your message to your primary caucus and then sending it to MLAConnect to share as an announcement. It will be posted on the Announcement blog and shared with the membership in the weekly email.

Submission Process

Your article must be submitted using the official MLAConnect Article Submission Form. Articles are due on the Friday of the week preceding the intended issue. Any articles submitted after the cutoff date may be rescheduled for the following week. Please be sure to prepare:

  • Listed author: must be a member and does not have to be the same as the person submitting the article
  • Primary topic
  • docx with article copy
  • Any images you’d like to include; must be high-res 96 dpi JPG or PNG

If you have any questions, please contact MLAConnect Editor, Christine Willis, AHIP.
