A central value of the journal is to assist new scholars in their goals to build their publication records. The Mentorship Program links prospective authors in the early stages of their careers with faculty in their field who can provide mentorship to develop the manuscript and advance towards publication. The Mentorship Program adheres to supportive feminist editorial practices.
MALCS Summer Institute Writing Workshop
The Summer Institute Writing Workshop is a two-session workshop that invites MALCS members to submit scholarly manuscripts in advance of the Institute that will undergo review by the facilitator and other workshop participants. The most recent out-going Editor(s) of the journal facilitate(s) the workshop, which is designed to create a publishing community with the aim to energize knowledge production through collaboration and institutionalized mentorship. Participants are asked to grant the journal rights of first refusal. The workshop has become one of the formal venues by which we create a feminist editorial praxis in the publication of work by and about Chicanas/Latinas and Indigenous scholars.
We encourage applications from writers at all professional levels, including tenure-track, tenured or mid-career professors. The annual call for participants is announced each spring. Please contact the Editors for additional information.
