About Ploughshares Solos

Ploughshares Solos is a digital-only series of stories, essays, and novellas published by Ploughshares Literary Magazine in Boston, MA. Pshares Singles launched on July 31, 2012. Roughly every month, a new Solo will be released on digital publishing commerce platforms.

Ploughshares, founded in 1971, publishes short stories, poems, and essays three times a year (April, August, and December). It has published the early work of some of today’s most respected writers, including Tim O’Brien, Sue Miller, Robert Pinsky, Jayne Anne Phillips, and Edward P. Jones. Over the years, Ploughshares has sometimes received longer submissions that were difficult to publish due to space considerations in the print issue. Ploughshares Solos is a forum for these lengthier stories and essays.

Meet the Author

Eileen Pollack was born and grew up in Liberty, N.Y., the heart of the Jewish Catskills, where her grandparents owned and operated a small hotel and her father was the town dentist. A graduate of Yale with a BS in physics, Eileen later earned an MFA from the University of Iowa. She is the author of two collections of short fiction, The Rabbi in the Attic and In the Mouth (which won the Edward Lewis Wallant Award); a novel, Paradise, New York; and a work of creative nonfiction called Woman Walking Ahead: In Search of Catherine Weldon and Sitting Bull, which won a 2003 WILLA Finalist Award. Eileen’s second novel, Breaking and Entering, was published in January 2012 by Four Way Books and soon after was awarded the 2012 Grub Street National Book Prize and named a New York Times Editor’s Choice selection. Her novella “The Bris” was selected by Stephen King for the 2007 edition of Best American Short Stories.
