Free Ploughshares: Mark Doty

The Ploughshares logo

It’s time for week seven of our Free Ploughshares Summer Contest! This week we’re offering our Spring 1999 issue, guest edited by Mark Doty and featuring poems and stories from writers such as Sharon Olds, Lucille Clifton, Tony Hoagland, and many more.

In order to win, simply comment below as to why you love Mark Doty or any of the issue’s contributors (the full list of which can be found here.) We’ll read through the comments and our managing editor Andrea Drygas will choose our winning commenter by noon tomorrow. After that, we’ll send you the issue and you’ll have up to thirty days to write a review that we’ll later publish on the Ploughshares blog and website, in honor of our upcoming fortieth anniversary. This is a great opportunity for any writer looking to get her or his name out there, so even if you’re not interested in winning this issue, please pass the news along to all your writer friends!

The full contest details can be found here. If you’re interested in continuing to hear about this weekly contest, make sure to fan us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our blog feed, or add us on Tumblr.

May the best commenter win!
