    Attention Poets who are active members of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi: Phi Kappa Phi Forum seeks original, previously unpublished poetry from active
    Message 1 of 2 , Feb 23, 2009
      Attention Poets who are active members of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi:













      Phi Kappa Phi Forum seeks original, previously unpublished poetry from active members for its summer 2009 edition that will be devoted to American pride around the anniversary of the birth of the nation. Numerous problems plague the United States: the country is mired in a recession; we’re fighting two wars; many nations hate the land of liberty; the obesity epidemic continues to jeopardize our citizens; millions of Americans remain without healthcare. Still, July 4 marks an occasion to celebrate the realm and what it means to be American. The theme of the edition will be analytical, historical, philosophical, cultural, – not jingoistic. Scholarly articles will span numerous disciplines. 

       

      One original, previously unpublished poem will be selected from all entries to appear in the printed version of the magazine's summer edition as a complement to the scholarly articles. The winner's photo and a short biography will appear along with the poem. Runners-up will appear online. The contest is open only to active Phi Kappa Phi members, published or unpublished. The poetry must reflect the theme of the issue. 

       

      Poems should be up to 40 lines long. One poem per entrant per issue, please. Send your poem as a Word attachment or in the body of the email. Also include a short bio (three or four sentences including Web links), contact information (mailing address
      and work, home and cell phone numbers) and PKP member number and school affiliation as a separate Word attachment or in the body of the email underneath the poem. Selected poets will be contacted for photos. The deadline to submit your material is noon CST Friday, March 13, 2009. Poet Sandra Meek, Professor of English, Rhetoric and Writing at Berry College in Mount Berry, GA., and an active PKP member since 1986, serves as the poetry editor/judge. Entries will only be accepted by email at <poetry(at)phikappaphi.org> (replace (at) with @)

        Phi Kappa Phi Forum seeks original, previously unpublished poetry from active
        members for its spring 2010 edition. The poetry must reflect the theme of the
        issue: spring is in the air. Tentative topics for scholarly articles and columns
        include the annual spring return of cliff swallows; the benefits of spring
        flowers and the threats to these plants; the impact that key men's and women's
        "March Madness" NCAA basketball games has on sports as well as on society;
        canonical literature related to spring; to what degree spring allergies are a
        pharmaceutical invention.

        Poems should be up to 40 lines long. One poem per entrant per edition, please.
        The winning poet receives five free copies of the edition. The winner's photo
        and a short biography also will appear along with the poem. Runners-up may be
        chosen to appear online. The contest is open only to active Phi Kappa Phi
        members, published or unpublished.

        Send your poem as a Word attachment or as a cut-and-paste in the body of the
        email. Also include a short bio (three or four sentences including Web links),
        contact information (mailing address and work, home and cell phone numbers) and
        Phi Kappa Phi member number and school affiliation as a separate Word attachment
        or as a cut-and-paste underneath the poem in the body of the email. Selected
        poets will be contacted for photos and other information.

        The deadline to submit material is 7 a.m. CST Monday, December 7, 2009. Poet,
        Berry College professor and Phi Kappa Phi member Sandra Meek serves as the
        poetry editor and judge in consultation with Society management. Entries will be
