Elou Carroll is a graphic designer and freelance photographer who writes. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing with English Literature from the University of Chester and a Master’s in Publishing from Oxford Brookes.

She likes to catch ideas in jars and stash them away until she is ready to eat them. She would one day like to build a goldfish circus and often obeys the whims of inanimate objects.

Her work has been published or is forthcoming in Emerge Literary Journal, perhappened mag, Aloe, Apparition Literary Magazine, Underland Arcana, Walled Women and 101 Words. Her short story “The Great Green Forever” was shortlisted for the 2020 HG Wells Short Story Competition (Grand Senior Prize).

When she isn’t designing apparel and merchandise, Elou edits Crow & Cross Keys—an online literary journal which publishes the beautiful, dark, strange and lovely.
