Ploughshares is published three times a year at Emerson College. Each issue offers almost two hundred pages of great new stories and poems, guest-edited by a prominent writer who explores personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles. Our website serves as companion to our print journal. We have over 3,500 poems, stories, and articles from our current print issue and our back issue archives that you may read for free. We also have a multitude of Web-only information about our authors. Emerson College, our institutional sponsor, is a premier communications and performing arts college in Boston and hosts one of the best M.F.A. programs in creative writing in the country.
