Ploughshares publishes issues four times a year. Two of these issues are guest-edited by different, prominent authors. A third issue, a mix of both prose and poetry, is edited by our staff editors. The fourth issue, our Ploughshares Solos Omnibus, is the annual print anthology of the year’s digitally published Ploughshares Solos.
The Summer 2016 issue will be guest edited by Claire Messud and James Wood. The Winter 2016-2017 issue will be staff-edited. The Spring 2017 issue will be guest edited by Jennifer Haigh.
