WITCHCRAFT IS ON THE RISE

Submissions and ads

SUBMISSIONS

Witchcraft isn’t about riding on broomsticks and cursing your enemies and it isn’t about black conical hats either. There are a lot more witches in our communities than some might realize and it’s gaining popularity for many reasons. Witchcraft is gaining attention and popularity because it is based on spirituality and is unique to each individual. 

Above all, witchcraft is a journey – a very personal journey that is unique to each individual practicing it. It isn’t strictly religion and it isn’t strictly magick. It’s mold-able and flexible and moves with you just as the elements around you do.

Our readers embrace their journeys, are smart, and educated people, and we expect our writers to be up to the task. We often help promote worthwhile artists, shops, and writers.

We are not doing this to get rich, or to help you get rich.  We try to share stories that help people improve their witchy practice and to create a more magickal world for everyone.

We are looking for contributes who want to publish their posts regularly or just once with us. We cover various topics on our blog and magazine in a wide range of topics, if we think your guest post is inspiring, rich in information or would help our readers #elevatetheirpractice.
