Do Not Look at the Sun is a literary magazine, which was set up as donotlookatthesun.com in April 2009 and is edited from Paris. Its editor-in-chief since inception has been Anthony Cuthbertson.
The idea behind Do Not Look at the Sun is 'found poetry, free prose'. It features poetry, prose, and what it refers to as 'misfit lit'. Poets & Writers described the content as 'notes, thoughts, one-line poems, streams of thought and lucid dreams, and other words that have no place elsewhere.'
The magazine was launched in 2009 in Paris. It is published both in print and online on a biannual basis. Each issue is distributed in a different form that fits with their 'found poetry, free prose' ethos. Previous forms have included postcards, paper planes and street art. It is distributed by a growing network of volunteers from locations that include New Delhi, Sydney, Johannesburg, and New York.
