is an independent not-for-profit annual literary journal edited by author Diane Williams.
Founded in 2000, NOON publishes fiction and (sometimes) essays and drawings. NOON stories have won numerous awards and prizes, including 8 Pushcart Prizes in the past 10 years.
I’ve tried, but have never been able to find it in Toronto. Tired of looking, I decided to bring it in myself.
“A beautiful annual that remains staunchly avant-garde in its commitment to work that is oblique, enigmatic and impossible to ignore. . . stories that leave a flashbulb’s glow behind the eyes even as they resist sense.” — The New York Times
“Shimmers with courage, strangeness and unknown voices.” — Time Out New York
“A compendium of unlikely pleasures: short prose and illustrations that challenge us to think about meaning and narrative. The brainchild of fiction writer Diane Williams, who edits it, Noon has been around since 2000, publishing a single issue annually; it is elegantly designed and curated, a journal that wears its intentions on its sleeve.” — The Los Angeles Times
“NOON sets itself apart from the crowded field of literary journals with the quality of its submissions, its clean, easy-to-read design, and eye-catching cover. … The editors of NOON adeptly select innovative, original, and highly readable work.” — Library Journal
“The best stories in NOON are, indeed, stunning, in the sense that they leave one conscious of powerful meanings not yet fully absorbed.” — Times Literary Supplement
Each issue is $25. I’m currently out of stock but expect more issues in April. Text me if you’re keen for any and I’ll let you know when they arrive.
