- The Pedestrian, edited by Christopher Spiker, was an excellent quarterly journal which has now, unfortunately, ceased publication. An indication of its interests is evident from the statement that each issue "presents a topic and explores it from a variety of perspectives, most often making use of the 'familiar' (or 'personal') essay, a genre well suited to exploring the ordinary. We anthologize essays from the past that are relevant to each topic, some by classic essayists (Montaigne, Hazlitt, Chesterton, Woolf, and White, for example) and some by people less well-known. In addition, we publish new contributions that carry on the tradition of what Michel de Montaigne coined the 'essai' — conversational 'attempts' at an honest exploration of an individual's ordinary, everyday experience." Some information about the journal remains on its Facebook page here.
- Kostis Kourelis's Blog. Kourelis writes: "I have embraced Chris Arthur's mission statement, 'the strangeness that attends even the most mundane circumstances', in his essay '(En)trance' reprinted in The Best American Essays 2009". Kourelis is an architectural historian and archaeologist who teaches at Franklin and Marshall College. He applies some aspects of "(En)trance" to "objects-building-situations".

"The personal essay in our time ... stays alive because it dares to be unique and because it strenuously resists the encroachments of standardization, whether social, cultural or academic."
"The culture administered by the universities has always regarded the essay with suspicion."
