Winter 2012-2013

The Winter 2012-13 issue of Ploughshares, edited by John Skoyles and Ladette Randolph. Ploughshares, a journal of new writing, is guest-edited serially by prominent writers who explore different and personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles.

Ploughshares editor-in-chief Ladette Randolph and poetry editor John Skoyles compile this Winter issue, which features the work of several distinguished writers as well as the winners of the Emerging Writer’s Contest. The issue features fiction about the Bei Piao, the aimless twenty-somethings who wander modern Beijing (“Days of Being Mild,” by Xuan Juliana Wang), the legacy of anti-Semitism in Belgium (“Strawberries,” by Karl Taro Greenfeld), an essay about a painful high school production of The Miracle Worker (“Heather, 1984,” by Kate Flaherty), and poetry by Carl Dennis, Barbara Hamby, Ellen Bass, Afaa Michael Weaver, and many more.
