Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference 2019

About Normal Noise

Normal Noise is a semesterly magazine supported by Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University. Each issue provokes conversation about the complexities of everyday life through essays, creative nonfiction, journalism, poetry, photography and art. Our print publication seeks to examine the role that the arts and humanities play in shaping cultural, social, and political life in Arizona and especially in the ASU community. We hope to cultivate a space of resistance against the shrinkage of intellectual life and critical perspectives within the university. Brandishing our magnifying glasses, we go out into the wilderness of the New American University, Phoenix, and beyond, asking odd questions in hopes of coming to a new understanding of how forms of power work and shape our everyday life.
