Comments on Masks & Mirrors (3)

Love Phantom, by Freya Pickard; wonderfully gothic and very atmospheric.

Like too Heather Connelly's cover poem, but find her masks disturbing.

Great photo by JBH; a relationship glimpsed in a garden. You're wondering where and what next.

Intriguing story by Jenny Poulter, though I'm not sure why the protagonist's health should have deteriorated like that. But there is a point to make.

An eye catching final mask and what an ambiguous figure. It's an appealing theme, masks. Lots to think about.

Hope "Better Off Dead" does well. Matt has lots of imagination and his writing is full of life so the prospects are good.

Comments on Masks & Mirrors (2)

Thank you for sending the April issue of EOTE and for publishing my two small pieces!
I've already read it, as it is so beautiful! I particularly liked the poems and the pictures in it, but also the piece of prose and the review are lovely and very interesting.
I'm going to reread the whole 'zine, enjoying and savouring every single word, with calm and concentration.
It's really worthy of a further reading!!!
Furthermore I've loved its lay-out and where you chose to put the various photographs and pictures on the different pages.

Comments on Masks & Mirrors

What a really excellent read April’s edition was. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. Great choice of theme.All the articles and poems were really moving and of a high standard, particularly Jenny’s The Mirror. Loved the one on our favourite show The Phantom, as well as another of Katie’s reviews. Look forward to the next.

Jenny Poulter has a very readable style.

Enerico & Esselle

Enerico has had several of his photographs featured in previous issues of EoTE and this is the first time we have published his poetry. His poem The Man summed up the theme of Mask & Mirrors and we are very pleased to be able to include it in the current issue. Enerico's photography website can be found under the list of April's Contributors. 

Esselle appeared under a different name in EoTE a number of years ago when she was sketching and painting. Now she has moved into handcrafted gifts and you can find an amazing selection of her work at her website. (See the link to the right of this page). 

If you would like to read Enerico's poem and view Esselle's advert featured in the current issue of EOTE, please email EOTE with Subscribe EOTE in the subject line.

Jenny Poulter & Katie Wood

Jenny Poulter's poetry and short stories have featured in several issues of EoTE over the last few years. Her strong narrative style and unusual twists in her stories hooked our attention and made us laugh and cry and share them with our readers. Jenny not only writes, but is also a talented musician. 

Katie Wood's book reviews are a recent addition to EoTE. She chooses unusual books and writes about them in a compelling way, tempting the reader to buy them. Katie has recently started a new job at a Knitting Magazine and her first article will appear in July. Her new blogsite is listed under April's Contributors. 

If you would like to read Jenny's story and Katie's review that feature in the current issue of EoTE, please email EOTE with Subscribe EoTE in the subject line.

JBH & Heather Connelly


Jonathan B. Hoyt is an amateur photographer with a keen eye for the unusual (see his light burst photograph in the current issue). He has spent most of his life using film camera and only in the last few years has he ventured into the world of digital photography. 

We have featured his photography over the last 18 months in EOTE and find that his unique view on ordinary objects blends well with the kind of poetry and creativity we like to present through the 'zine. 

Heather Connelly

Heather is an artist who also writes down to earth poetry. She lives in Tasmania without the internet and pursues her creativity from home.

We have featured Heather's poetry and paintings for the last two years in EOTE and her work has also appeared in Freya's fanzine Clippings. She captures real-life in amusing and poignant ways in her poetry and exposes the rawness of gut-felt emotions through her paintings. 

If you would like to see JBH's photography and Heather's work featured in the current issue of EOTE, please email EOTE with Subscribe EOTE in the subject line.

Claudia & Freya

Claudia Messelodi

We first published one of Claudia's poems in the April 2010 issue of EOTE. Her poem was about wisteria and we also printed a photograph that she had sent us of these beautiful flowers. Since then we have published Claudia's poetry in not only EOTE but also in Freya's fanzine, Clippings. 

Claudia has recently won an award and has also had a volume of poems published in both English and Italian. To find out more about her work, please visit a stream of small stones 

Freya Pickard

Freya has been a regular contributor to EOTE for a number of years. We have published her poetry and short stories as well some of her photographs. 

Her first novel, Dragonscale Clippings, was published in 2009 and you can find out more about her writing at Clippings and Pure Haiku

Elizabeth Leaper & JulesPaige

I would like to welcome both Elizabeth Leaper and JulesPaige to EOTE. This is the first time either of them have been featured in the 'zine.In the April issue you will find some of their poetry. I was going to show some extracts here but the poems are short and as the editor, I would like you read them in the context of the whole 'zine.

JulesPaige wrote her Elfje first and inspired Elizabeth to write two poems in different forms.

They both run two blogsites each as follows: -

Elizabeth Leaper Elfje

Elizabeth Leaper Poetry

JulesPaige Small Stones

JulesPaige Poetry

I will be featuring the other contributors over the next few days.
