CASLT reviews each submission to determine its appropriateness for the magazine. If your article is accepted, it will be edited for tone and length as well as copyedited. During the publication process, CASLT will contact you to review the final version. Your article may also be translated and published in French. Articles received after the submission deadline will be held over for the following issue. Authors will receive a timeline for the issue in which their article will appear.

What We Look For

We look for brief (1,150 words maximum) articles that will be helpful to K–12 educators.

Our primary audiences are:

We prefer articles written in an informal, conversational style. We are not looking for conventional research reports or term papers. Executive summaries of research articles are preferred rather than longer dissertations. Writers should emphasize what they have learned from their experience and the implications of these discoveries for second-language teachers. We will prioritize articles highlighting new and effective programs that result in improvements in student second-language learning.

Writers will receive a complimentary issue containing their published article.
