A tiny red cloud
in the pearl grey sky at dawn,
winks, then fades away.

I thank my friend for mentioning me  as a contributor in her 'zine Ends of the Earth!
Below you can find information about Freya Pickard's work too.

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
If you would like to read both Claudia's and Freya's work featured in the current issue of EOTE, please email EOTE with Subscribe EOTE in the subject line.
