On Monday December 28, Jeunesse editor, Dr. Catherine Tosenberger will be participating in the “Chat with an Editor” session at the MLA Convention in Philadelphia. Dr. Tosenberger will be on from 4:00PM to 5:00PM.
For the past ten years, in an effort to help younger scholars submitting their work to journals, the Council of Editors of Learned Journals, an Allied Organization of MLA, has sponsored “Chat with an Editor” at the MLA Convention. With so many requests from editors and authors to keep this program going, the MLA has stepped forward to officially sponsor these sessions, which will now take place in the room the MLA maintains for certain associated organizations.
The service gives scholars the opportunity to meet one-on-one with an experienced editor to discuss any aspect of the publication process. It is not an article vetting service, but rather a chance for authors to obtain advice on any aspect of writing, submitting, and publishing a journal article, in a neutral and friendly atmosphere. Advisors and advisees will meet in Room 203-B of the Philadelphia Convention Center. (Please note the chats will not take place in the book exhibit hall). In recent years, about half of the advisees have been graduate students and half have been assistant professors, postdocs, adjunct or part-time professors, and independent scholars.
