The new issue of NOON just arrived!
The issue features work by Kim Chinquee, Glynis Clews, Roxanne Gay, Brandon Hobson,
Vi Khi Nao, Ted Krinkos, Elan Lafontaine, Clancy Martin, Lincoln Michel, Greg Mulvahy, Dylan Nice, Joanna Ruocca,
Valerie Shaff, several pieces by A. L Sniders translated by Lydia Davis from the Dutch, Lauren Spohrer, Robert Tindall,
Deb Olin Unferth, James Yeh and Anya Yurchyshyn.
As well as drawings by Augusta Gross, embroideries by Karen Reimer and photography by Bill Hayward.
I have long admired the urgency and tenacity
which Diane Williams conjures
across NOON’s pages.
There is both a rigorous candor and a strident democracy
to these pieces as a whole which reflect
the generosity and dedication of NOON’s editorial vision.
It is a humble honor to have a short piece in the new issue,
in the midst of so many dear friends
and voices whom I admire.
We owe Diane Williams a great deal of thanks
for inspiring us with both her own craft and
her commitment to publishing an annual
who’s lens on the world
lifts readers from out of their seats
and leaves them suspended in
an urgent new world.
