Modern Language Studies
Modern Language Studies (MLS) is the scholarly journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, which is edited and produced in its entirety at Susquehanna University. MLS publishes articles in all areas of English, American, and comparative literature, and the literatures of the modern languages. It is the 2005 Council of Editors of Learned Journals’ Phoenix Award Runner-Up for Significant Editorial Achievement.
Each year students in the Department of English and Creative Writing have internship opportunities as editorial assistants for the journal. In these positions, students develop skills in editorial protocols, subscription management and journal promotion. Students contact authors, subscribers and advertisers; edit texts; and work with the publication’s designer. The MLS editorial assistants are required to attend tutorials every two to three weeks that explore various topics in publishing and editing. They also submit a final reflection on their internship at the end of the semester.
The managing editorial assistant, who supervises the assistants and works closely with the editor throughout the year, is an award position given by the editors to a rising intern in recognition of her or his outstanding editorial work and promising leadership ability.
