Free Ploughshares, Part Two: Tim O’Brien and Mark Strand

The Ploughshares logo

It’s time for the second round of our fabulous Ploughshares sweepstakes!

This week we’ll be giving away a copy of our Winter 1995/96 issue, guest edited by Tim O’Brien and Mark Strand, and featuring works by Louise Glück, Jorie Graham, Charles Simic, Joyce Carol Oates, and many more.

In order to win this issue, please leave a comment on this post explaining why you love Tim O’Brien, Mark Strand, or any of the issue’s contributors. Our managing editor Andrea Drygas will read through your submissions and choose the lucky commenter by noon on Thursday, June 30th. Remember: we’d like a review in return, which we’ll publish online in honor of our fortieth anniversary. More details can be found here.

If you’re interested in hearing about this weekly contest, remember to fan us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to our blog feed.

UPDATE: I’ve made my selection, and so this posting is now CLOSED. We’ll be doing this every week, so there will be plenty more chances for free issues. Stay tuned!
