Free Ploughshares, Round Six: Seamus Heaney

The Ploughshares logo

We’ve really enjoyed all of the great comments we’ve been receiving through this contest, and this week we’re excited to offer yet another fantastic back issue of Ploughshares to a lucky winner. It’s the all-poetry Spring 1984 issue guest edited by the Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney, and featuring work by Marilyn Hacker, Rita Dove, and many more.

For a chance to win, simply comment below explaining why you love Seamus Heaney or any of the contributors featured in this issue. We’ll read through the comments and our managing editor, Andrea Drygas, will choose the winning commenter by noon tomorrow. All we ask from you is a review of the issue within thirty days of receiving it, which we’ll publish online in honor of our fortieth anniversary. Details can be found here.

Happy reading!

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!
