Once again here at Eye Flash, we have found an amazing artist to grace our front cover. Monika Kozac’s is an artist and illustrator from Poland who has seen her work appear in KALTBULT magazine, exhibited in Poland, and has a fierce following on social media. It’s not difficult to see why- her mix of vibrant colour and line work draws your attention and intrigue, and leaves you wanting to know more about the energy behind the image. Read below to find out more about Monika.
Publisher: Frosted Fire
Author: Neil Richards
Neil Richard’s first collection masters a world unfamiliar, yet known in the depths of conscious by us all. Through the safety net of mythology and playful meter, Neil holds the reader’s hand and enables them to feel at home with him in this world of death and black dogs.
Joanna’s poem is a perfectly formed four-line stanza, full of painful memories expressed with the skilled storytelling Joanna’s work is known to bring. An addictive read, it’s a poem that fills the reader with fractures of memories that come together to create a beautiful and profound poem. We hope in sharing this poem you can return to it time and again to experience the various emotions it shelters within the lines.
Review: Ghosting for beginners
Publisher: Indigo Dreams Publishing
Author: Anna Saunders
Anna’s fifth collection of poetry- she knows what she’s doing. The cover has contrasting primary colours and pathways heading towards, or away from, something unknown and particularly ghostly. Great set up for the subject and tone of the collection.
