The Endicott Studio
An online journal for the exploration of myth, folklore and fairie tales and their use in contemporary arts. Founded in 1987, the Endicott Studio supports and promotes the works of an interconnected group of mythic writers, artists, and scholars located across the United States, and in Canada and England. From the beginning, it has been our policy to ignore the borders that the marketplace erects between genres, categories, and disciplines in order to champion fine mythic literature and art wherever it might be found.
ISIS: The Interstitial Studies Institute at SUNY New Paltz
The Interstitial Studies Institute at SUNY New Paltz is devoted to the study and practice of the Interstitial Arts. For the years 2002 through 2004, our focus will be on Interstitial writing, a kind of literary production that falls between currently established genres and forms. Our goal at ISIS is to facilitate the understanding and production of such literary works. Each summer, ISIS will conduct an intensive writing workshop and analytic seminar devoted to particular interstitial topics.
The Mythic Imagination Institute
The Mythic Imagination Institute seeks to enliven the human spirit, raise personal and cultural consciousness, and increase cross-cultural tolerance by working to promote mythic literacy in the our modern world. To that end, we are reaching across disciplines and borders to bring together those who engage with myth in the fields of psychology, the arts, anthropology, education, and scholarship, enabling them to carry their light to a broader popular audience.
