Call For Illustrations

Hey all you sweet things and cosmonauts, we're going lapdog for illustrations. That means we're a little low on the slick for NOÖ [10] and we'd like you or your friends to send us some drawings and photographs. What kind of art do we like? Check out a few of our past issues for clues; that's the best answer. Stuff that is or transfers well into B&W is key. I've decorated this blog post with a photo from NOÖ 9. Think of it as a clove into the orange of your inspiration. Send us some art! Thanks. Email us at with those badass ovals and drips.

NOÖ Journal and Magic Helicopter at the Behest of Bessy Best

Trumpets around the internet literary scene lately, with the Wigleaf Top 50 Very Short Fictions 2009 and Best of the Web 2009 from Dzanc Books.

We're happy to report that pieces from NOÖ appear in both: Carrie Spell's "It Was Only Two Months" is in the Wigleaf Top 50 and "Babyfat" from Claudia Smith will appear in Best of the Web 2009.

Not only that, but Nick Antosca's "Rachel Mia's Existence", Noah Cicero's "Two Hard Workers", and "Babyfat" all appear on the Wigleaf Top 200. Meanwhile, Magic Helicopter authors Jimmy Chen and Benjamin Buchholz both have pieces in Best of the Web 2009.

Many other wonderful past NOÖ contributors appear in both collections, but it's up to you to find them. Scavenger hunt!

Congratulations to everyone and many thanks to Wigleaf and DZANC for their terrific work in putting these anthologies together. Go net lit. Net the lit go.
