The Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association is a peer-reviewed journal that is published twice a year as a service to M/MLA members, who are encouraged to submit essays and book reviews.
The Spring issue each year is devoted to shorter "working papers," and the M/MLA invites submissions of 12-15 pages drawing from 12-15 sources. The annual deadline to submit essays for the Spring issue is December 15th.
The Fall issue is devoted to the previous year's convention theme, which is announced in advance on the web site and in the Journal. The annual deadline for these more developed submissions (not exceeding 8,000 words in length) is March 31st.
Please read the submission guidelines for additional information.
