Issue 60

Our twentieth anniversary issue! In the symposium “Fully Human,” nine artists and writers consider how art enlarges our sense of human calling. Plus, a conversation with singer-songwriter Sam Phillips; an essay by Christian Wiman; poems by Franz Wright, Joanna Solfrian, Dick Allen, and Terri Witek; fiction by Ron Hansen; four painters discuss contemporary painting; and more. We had to add pages to this issue in order to pack all this goodness in.
