Help NoirCon Return in 2022

Through our GoFundMe campaign, we seek to raise $5000 to cover costs for a virtual platform for our 2022 conference. Any funds raised beyond that will go towards future NoirCon events. Donations of any size will guarantee access to the 2022 NoirCon (limited to the first 400 contributors).

My name is Lou Boxer, the director of NoirCon, a symposium dedicated to noir literature and related arts (films, music, performance art, poetry, etc).

I am asking for your help to get the conference back on its feet after four years of struggles.

Deen Kogan and I founded NoirCon in 2007 in Philadelphia, and the intimate, one-of-a-kind, and offbeat conference was immediately embraced by the mystery community. Unfortunately, Deen’s sudden passing in 2018 left the NoirCon family devastated and without her ardent leadership, and the 2018 symposium was canceled. Covid prevented us from reconvening in 2020.

Now, NoirCon is ready to return! We have a virtual event in the works for October of 2022, and are already planning future events for 2023 and beyond–and we are graciously asking for your financial help to bring the NoirCon family back together [either virtually, in-person or in a hybrid format].

If noir is what we fear most—loneliness, isolation, darkness, violence—then NoirCon is a community bent on embracing our fears as seen through movies, books, music or art. Misery does love company, but when it is amongst friends, it makes life just a little sweeter. By contributing to NoirCon, you help our community grow by creating a unique camaraderie of respect and love of noir arts in all their forms.

Whether you are new to NoirCon or a returning friend, I thank you for being part of this family.

It wouldn’t be NoirCon without all of you.

Sincerely,
Lou Boxer
