Mission Statement

High Noon’s purpose is to provide a platform for creative works that embody the defining moments in our lives when we started becoming who we are today, whether it was a brief flash or a long journey. We aim to provide a space to share about a time of personal high noon when our future confronted our past. High Noon is timeless; coming of age looks different for everyone. The threads of our experiences criss-cross in different, often unexpected ways. We celebrate the differences in our stories and discover the little details that make us realize we are not alone. We are committed to creating a sense of community and to representing literary voices from all backgrounds, regardless of credentials. To all those who have seen High Noon, we want to share your story.
