We Want Your Recipes!

Have a delicious recipe with a literary tie-in? We’re seeking literary-themed recipes for the MLA’s first cookbook. Proceeds from the cookbook, which will be sold at the 2019 convention in Chicago, will support the MLA’s advocacy and professional development programs. To submit your recipe, e-mail achang@mla.org by 15 May.

We welcome recipes for appetizers, main and side dishes, desserts, and cocktails. Each submission should include a brief description (maximum 100 words) of the recipe’s connection to an author or a work of literature, an ingredients list, and instructions. If you have a mouthwatering photo of your dish, send it to us as a high-resolution JPEG or TIFF (300 dpi or higher). We’ll notify you about the status of your submission by 1 June. And keep an eye out for the cookbook at MLA PubCentral in Chicago!
