Winter 2002-03

The Winter 2002-03 issue of Ploughshares, guest-edited by C.D. Wright. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Edited by renowned poet C.D. Wright (Deepstep Come Shining, Tremble), this issue features new works from Colette Inez, Dorothea Tanning, Liz Waldner, Ben Lerner, Jennifer Martenson, Richard Chetwynd, and Dorothea Tanning. With allusions and quotations from both Henry Miller and the poets and writers of the issue, Wright professes curating the issue based on the fact that "the language these writers are speaking constitutes itself as a protective shield against an epidemic mental blackout and outbreaks of frantic futilitarianism," and that "art-making presupposes a revolutionary state of mind."
