When embarking on the journey of creating a literary magazine, we could not have imagined the network of individuals in our community that would believe in and support a concept we felt truly passionate about. The staff of High Noon wants to send our utmost gratitude for your support. It is because of you that we are able to create a space for creatives on campus to showcase their work and celebrate the value art brings our Trinity community.

The premiere launch party of High Noon is intended to showcase our first issue of our literary journal and bring together a community of those who have experienced high noon's and wish to share them. As Trinity reaches its own High Noon in its 150th year, we are proud to stand alongside it. We invite you to celebrate with us.
