Noon on the Moon
Poetic Series #4
The fourth issue in the “Poetic Series” is a seasonally themed special issue, a festive anthology composed of contributions from more than twenty writers and artists. Each interpreting the theme in an unconventional and abstract sense, it is an alternative omnibus of everyone’s favorite and most controversial holiday. Noon on the Moon’s title comes from a poem by Barry Schwabsky, featured alongside poetry by Charles Bernstein, Judith Goldman and Dorothea Lasky, prose by Veronica Gonzalez Peña, Andreas Schlaegel and Sarah Wang, amongst others. Artwork is provided in the form of a colorful collection of romance covers illustrated by Vicki Khuzami.
The “Poetic Series” brings together works of poetry and literature in combination with visual art, introducing young as well as established writers concerned with challenging the boundaries of traditional forms of narrative. Initiated by Keren Cytter and coedited with Fiona Bryson.
