Ploughshares has published quality literature since 1971. Best known for our award winning Ploughshares literary journal, we also publish Ploughshares Solos, digital-first long stories and essays, and this lively literary blog. Since 1989 we have been based at Emerson College in downtown Boston.

A full masthead of the staff working on the journal and the blog is available here.
