End of an Era

Don Lee, who has edited the venerable litmag Ploughshares for 19 years, will be stepping down from the post to join the faculty at Macalester College. This truly will mark the end of an era in literary journal publishing, as Don has been a strong and influential force in the business for as long as many of us have been editors and writers. Fortunately, he'll still be part of our community as a writer, with his new novel Wrack and Ruin due out next year.
