About Profession

Brought to you by the Modern Language Association, Profession offers articles, news, and resources to support the work you do—in a classroom, a library, a writing center, or an office for study abroad. We publish three issues a year; each will include a cluster of articles on a theme as well as other timely essays. We’ll also bring you practical tools, guidelines, calls for papers, grant opportunities, and more.

If you have an idea for a cluster or want to submit an article, please e-mail profession@mla.org. We’re looking for pieces that will interest a broad range of readers and give them ideas and inspiration they can use. Submissions of 1,000 to 4,000 words may be sent as Microsoft Word files and will be reviewed by the general editor. Authors must be members of the MLA.

Want to submit a conference announcement, a fellowship, or another opportunity for MLA members? You can use our resource submission form.
