    In this paper, in a panel co-sponsored by the MLA Committee on Contingent Labor in the Profession and the Council of Editors of Learned Journals, I summarize some of the structural and practical problems that challenge contingent scholars when they try to publish their work in scholarly journals. I share the record of the online, multimedia, scholarly periodical _Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation_, of which I am a co-founding editor, in publishing contingent, independent, and untenured scholars, and suggest some practices, many drawn from writing pedagogies, that can help include and nurture these valuable, precariously employed colleagues, whose under-compensated labor makes our universities run.
