Forum Sneak Peek: Now You See It

Oct 12, 2020

The latest edition of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum will be arriving in your mailbox soon. Continuing with the 2020 vision-based topics, the fall edition's theme is "Now You See It." The featured stories, regular columnists, and even our custom crossword puzzle will all dive deeper into that idea.

The feature articles discuss:

  • A Taste of Fear – Home for the lockdown, nationally renowned nature writer Scott Russell Sanders confronts challenges some unlucky Americans faced before the pandemic.
  • Sleep Paralysis – Frozen between slumber and waking, people encounter strange experiences and report visions of unwelcome visitors.
  • Slow Revelations – With advancing age, essayist and cultural critic Willard Spiegelman takes a deeper look at mortality, which can reveal what's really important.
  • Second Thoughts – Essayist and teacher Derek Furr wonders how online teaching and other pandemic realities are shaping the art of reflection.

Plus, don't miss a recap of our 2020 UN-conventional convention.

As always, we welcome letters to the editor, member news, poetry submissions and story ideas for upcoming themes. Visit our Forum page to learn more.
