We here at Ploughshares are thrilled and honored to be named Journal of the Week by The Fiction Writers Review! To check out the complete article click here. Among other things, the writer, Michael Rudin, talks about how Ploughshares was founded and the guest editor policy. An excerpt:
For over forty years, Ploughshares has represented different aesthetics of contemporary literature, exposing its readership to work from established authors as well as emerging writers—to say nothing for transforming the latter into the former…The name. The pedigree. Yet you might be surprised just how deeply one informs the other.
The Fiction Writers Review also interviewed our editor-in-chief, Ladette Randoph, on topics ranging from a Ploughshares time capsule to digital publishing. An added bonus: a 3 free subscription giveaway if you follow them on twitter.
The Fiction Writers Review is an online literary journal produced for and about writers by other writers. Not only do they publish reviews about new books, old books, and literary journals, but they also ask important questions about fiction and writing fiction, they post interviews with authors, and they write essays about writing and the craft. We appreciate them for the work they are doing (and for writing about us!) and are happy to be a part of the same writing community.
