All giants in the literary world and all people who got some of their first starts at the Emerson-based literary magazine, Ploughshares.
Established in a Cambridge bar in 1971 — the founders goal was to "make a distinct contribution to the national adventure of writing." Forty years later, the founders of Ploughshares can safely say they've made that contribution. We take a look back at the history of the magazine and talk about where it's headed.
