    Dear colleagues,
    The MLA is looking for ways to improve year-round engagement in the forums, and it has identified professional development as a critical area of need for many of our members. If you would be willing to mentor another member of the LLC Pre-1990 African Literature forum, please reply to this post here or email Wendy Belcher at
    Mentoring could include: sharing syllabi with other instructors, commenting on a draft of a forum member’s fellowship application, reading an article or book chapter in progress, reviewing sample job materials for PhD candidates, holding a mock interview by FaceTime/googlehangout/Skype, etc.
    Thank you for your consideration and your willingness to share your time with members of this forum.


    Wendy Belcher

    [This post copies language from the 18th-century forum post; I thought it was a great idea for us as well.]
