About JoMA

  • "The Journal of Mythic Arts" is an online journal published by the Endicott Studio, an organization dedicated to literary, visual, and performance arts inspired by myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral storytelling tradition.

    For generations, artists have drawn upon mythic and folkloric symbolism to make contemporary works addressing the issues of their time. Our mission is to honor mythic artists of the past, support mythic artists working today, and to carry this tradition into the future.

Thank you for the beautiful review! Also worthy of mention is our art editor, Jessica Treadwell, who performs heroic feats with both camera and editorial advice.

I will definitely check out "The Edge of the Forest" - what a marvelous title.


Daniel, I apologize for not reviewing the journal sooner! With Midori and I *both* in long, overly-extended processes of house sales and moves this year (living in temporary housing and packing boxes along the way), we're running a bit behind on everything...and I don't imagine that's going to change until each of us is finally settled again. *sigh*

No, we're honored to be reviewed. I hope the house matters settle soon! Our art editor and I moved earlier this year, as well...it's an insanity of boxes and keys and windex. Very glad to be settling in at last, and reviewing submissions again! ...although there is still a lot to be unpacked.

Do you remember Merlin in the Disney "Sword in the Stone," and how he had a spell for shrinking his entire wizard's house and all accoutrements into a tiny briefcase? I think Mary Poppins had the same briefcase, too.... Now that would be handy!

Book Sales for
Endicott Kids

  • You support our children's charities when you buy books recommended anywhere on the JoMA site by following the book's link back to Amazon.com. This tags you as an Endicott customer, and we receive a small percentage of the sale.

    If we haven't got a link to the book, CD, or DVD that you want to purchase, you can still be an Endicott customer by entering Amazon through the link below. This nets a smaller percentage than the directly-linked books, but every bit helps and goes to a good cause.

    Please bookmark this page for all your Amazon purchases -- and help us to help the Endicott kids.
