Welcome to the MLA Commons home for the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. This site is maintained by the Mentoring Coordinator, Janine Utell.
The goal of this site is to provide information specifically about CELJ-sponsored events at the annual MLA convention. These include:
- sessions on scholarly publishing coordinated and facilitated by the CELJ in its capacity as an MLA Allied Organization
- “Chat with an Editor,” an opportunity for authors to meet with journal editors for one-on-one mentoring
Information on CELJ sessions at MLA 2019 in Chicago is available here.
Information on “Chat with an Editor” is available here.
Information about the Council of Editors of Learned Journals—including mission, resources, membership, and awards—may be found on the organization’s website.
