Tokyo-based poet Philip Rowland first published “Noon: Journal of the Short Poem” in 2004, starting as “very much a personal project.”

The limited-print journal, hand-bound on washi paper, ran for six years. In 2014, Rowland restarted “Noon” online, striving to maintain the integrity of the original by offering a multitude of styles and varied perspectives, accepting contributions from poets all over the world as long as the poems were less than 14 lines. Continuing success has led to its first collection, published this summer by Isobar Press, “Noon: An Anthology of Short Poems.”

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
