Elementos de conteúdo e estrutura

Âmbito e conteúdo

The Ploughshares Collection includes materials that document the major functions of the magazine and its staff: administration, grant applications, production, distribution, marketing, and publicity. The collection also houses correspondence and original manuscripts. The administrative materials span the editorial leadership of DeWitt Henry and Don Lee and document the acquisition of Ploughshares by Emerson College. The grant application materials chronicle the evolution of Ploughshares’ mission through project narratives and reports. Production materials include original cover art and photographs. Marketing and publicity materials include flyers, mailings, newspaper clippings, reviews, and photographs of prominent writers and supporters taken at benefits and readings. Correspondence between the editors, guest editors, contributors, supporters, and critics of the magazine sheds light on the active literary community that evolved around Ploughshares.
