Fall 1991

20th Anniversary Issue

The Fall 1991 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by DeWitt Henry and Joyce Peseroff. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

This 20th anniversary issue, guest-edited by Ploughshares founder DeWitt Henry and longtime poetry editor Joyce Peseroff, celebrates the writers and editors who were a part of the magazine's first two decades. Henry and Peseroff "set out to convene the extended community of Ploughshares editors by soliciting new poetry, fiction, and commentary from them." 

In addition to work from this community, the issue also features unsolicited writing from talented young authors. This classic back issue features a number of prominent writers, including Jennifer Egan, Andre Dubus, Joy Williams, Donald Hall, Mary Karr, Tess Gallagher, and Rita Dove, among others.
