Editorial Focus: 

Ploughshares is a journal of new writing, and two out of three issues per year are guest-edited by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles, with each year's Winter issue staff-edited. 50% of each issue is directly solicited by the guest editor, and the remaining 50% is selected from unsolicited manuscripts. Pshares Solos, a new series in 2012, will digitally publish long stories and novella length work as standalone singles. The series is staff edited, and we are actively looking for submissions. See submission guidelines for details.

Tips From the Editor: 

Please note that we now charge a $3 service fee for online submissions  (subscribers may submit online without charge). Mail submissions will still be accepted for no charge.
