Fall 2003

The Fall 2003 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by Alice Hoffman. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Guest-edited by Alice Hoffman, author of Practical Magic, The Dovekeepers, and many other acclaimed works of fiction, this all-fiction Fall 2000 issue of Ploughshares contains stories by notable authors like Gregory Maguire, Jayne Anne Phillips, Elizabeth Berg, and Grace Paley. Of the works in this issue, Hoffman says in her Introduction, "That, of course, is what great fiction does: it opens a door you never even knew was there, it reminds you that the world isn't always what you had assumed it to be, and that it is our job, as writers of fiction, to report from a front no one has ever visited before."
