Guidelines for Submissions to Language Magazine

Audience Our readership is comprised of those who must stay informed on developments in the language/literacy education arena. This includes English Language (EL) and ELA, world language/bilingual educators and advisors, literacy and reading specialists, superintendents, principals, policymakers, teacher educators, study abroad advisors
and agents, students, course coordinators, and corporate training managers. Over 80% of our subscribers are based in the U.S. at schools, universities, career centers, libraries, and colleges from elementary through to adult education levels. More than 40,000 readers are served through bulk subscriptions to associations, school districts, multinational companies, and government agencies.

Background For over 21 years, Language Magazine has covered language related news while providing resources for teachers, students, and administrators. As world language, bilingual, dual-language, and English language learner
methodologies collide, Language Magazine explores these intersections, focusing on dual language and bilingual education programs and the state of literacy in the U.S. and abroad.
Through promoting equity, multicultural learning, global citizenship, language, and literacy education, Language Magazine provides well-researched insight into the latest breakthroughs in education.

Style The style of Language Magazine is American English. Our tone is professional yet approachable. Although the bulk of our readership is comprised of professional educators and administrators, the magazine is also read by policymakers, business people, students and interested parents, so try not to exclude any potential readers of your article. Most importantly, please be clear and succinct. Please include a short bio (max 50 words), including your academic title, your e-mail address (which will be published with your article, unless otherwise requested) and a phone number.

Quotations and References If you are using quotations, identify the sources. Depending on their length, it may be necessary to obtain permission for them to be used, so please give full information. If you quote references, give full bibliographic information.
