I write to ask for your help with an important project in development in the MLA publications program. We are beginning preparation of the volume Approaches to Teaching the Works of Octavia E. Butler , edited by Tarshia L. Stanley, and would very much like your input.

Please see the survey and call for essay proposals available on the MLA Web site at . As with other books in the MLA series Approaches to Teaching World Literature, this one will contain a discussion of the most important and useful materials available to teachers—in this case, of those on the works of Octavia E. Butler—but will be composed largely of essays by instructors. The deadline for completing the survey and submitting an essay proposal is 1 July 2014, and the survey results and proposals will be sent directly to the volume’s editor.

You are receiving this message because you belong to an MLA division or discussion group whose members we believe might be interested in contributing to this volume, and we encourage you to pass it along to other colleagues who may be interested. We would appreciate your assistance with this project and look forward to hearing from you.
