We rely on exceptional, unsolicited book review submissions for freshness and diversity in our content—so we’re always looking for more.

If you’d like to submit a review, please email a .doc or .pdf attachment to our associate blog editor, Amelia Hassani, at blog@pshares.org.

We’re open to a wide range of book subjects, and only ask that the books you choose to review be “literary,” not written by your friends or family members, not written by current Emerson College or Ploughshares employees, and published within the last four months. We’ll consider reviews of work by established and emerging writers alike.

Reviews should be around 800 words. Payment will be $15 plus one issue of the print magazine.
