The Journal of Mythic Arts

The Journal of Mythic Arts (click for link), sponsored by Endicott Studio, has fascinating articles in its back issues and great links to other media. Please feel free to visit them! Here is some information on Endicott Studio from their Web site:

Founded in 1987, The Endicott Studio is an organization dedicated to literary, visual, performance, and environmental arts rooted in myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the traditional stories of people the world over.

For more than 20 years, Endicott has supported a wide variety of mythic projects, events, and publications in the U.S. and U.K. -- while at the same time raising money for charities assisting homeless, abused, and at-risk children. The slide show above features work by some of the contributing artists and writers in the Endicott Circle. (A longer list can be found here.)

Endicott's award-winning web journal, The Journal of Mythic Arts, appeared online from 1997 to 2008, promoting contemporary mythic arts and providing resources and information for mythic artists, students, and scholars. Although publication of JoMA has ended with the Summer 2008 issue in order to allow us to move on to new endeavors, we will continue to maintain 10+ years of JoMA material online, keeping this mythic information freely available to readers both new and old.

The Endicott Studio itself is not ending, however -- merely evolving into a new phase now that it's reached the ripe old age of 21. We've got some intriguing new projects in the works, so please stayed tuned.
