Beschreibung des Verlags

The Winter 2014-15 issue of Ploughshares. Ploughshares is an award-winning journal of new writing. Two out of each year's three issues are guest-edited by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles, with the Winter issue staff-edited. 


This staff-edited issue of Ploughshares features a diverse collection of poems, essays, and stories. The prose ranges from surreal humor -- David Cameron's "Mannequin," about a man's relationship with a life-size doll he buys to use the HOV lane -- to tragedy in Lisa Gruenberg's essay on the experiences of her Viennese father and his family during the Holocaust. Sherrie Flick's Plan B essay looks at the joy and rage of gardening, and Nancy Kang and Silvio Torres-Saillant write an appreciation of the Dominican-American poet Rhina P. Espaillat. 


The Winter issue also features poetry by Philip Levine, Sherod Santos, Nalini Jones, Laurie Sewall, and Gary Young; an interview with Zacharis Award winner Roger Reeves; and the winners of the annual Emerging Writer's Contest.
