Pleiades: A Journal of New Writing is a literary biannual featuring poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews by authors from around the world. Past contributors include winners of the Nobel, Ruth Lilly, Pulitzer, Bollingen, Prix de la Liberté, and Neustadt Prizes, recipients of Guggenheim, Whiting, National Book Critics Circle and National Book Awards, and many writers seeing their work in print for the first time. In addition, the Pleiades Book Review comprises half of each issue and features both essay reviews and shorter reviews of primarily small-press books.
Pleiades Press publishes a book of poetry a year, as determined through the Lena-Miles Wever Todd Poetry Prize. Judges are poets of national prominence, and the contest is co-directed by Susan Ludvigson and Wayne Miller. The press also publishes a book a year through the Unsung Masters Series, each volume of which focuses on an important writer who has been unjustly neglected.Pleiades
