Propose an MLA Volume

The MLA book program is always eager to hear your ideas for books you would like to propose. We are especially interested in three areas at the moment:

  • our series of MLA Guides, which are companions to the MLA Handbook. These short single-authored volumes are intended to support students in developing skills they need in undergraduate study. The first volumes are on digital literacy and research in literature. We are open to your recommendations and proposals for volumes on other topics.
  • Spanish-language works for the MLA Texts and Translations series, including texts from Latin America, Spain, and any other locations. Single works and collections in any genre are welcome. We prefer new translations of works that are in the public domain and not already easily accessible.
  • further volumes in composition and rhetoric, including both edited collections and monographs

Feel free to contact the acquisitions editors at with your ideas and inquiries.
