Ninth Free Ploughshares!

side by side cover of the Ploughshares Poetry and Fiction issue

This is the ninth week of our free Ploughshares contest, and this time we’re featuring our Spring 1988 issue, guest edited by the poet Maxine Kumin. This issue also feature work by Joyce Carol Oates, Donald Hall, and Susannah Kaysen.


In order to win this wonderful issue, please leave a comment in the space provided below detailing why you love Maxine Kumin or any of the issue’s other contributors. 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. That’s right – your words could be on our website, so make sure to pass news of this contest on!

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.

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!
