Poetry Is Dead – Coven issue submission deadline

Title: Poetry Is Dead – Coven issue submission deadline

Date: January 15, 2018

Description: We’re calling the four corners. We’re calling magic makers of all kinds. We’re calling for spells for survival, tinctures of remedy, gossip, renewal rituals, new moon intentions, full moon feels, astrology memes. We want writing that plays between the worlds, that conjures new worlds, that heals the world we live in. We’re warding off “witch hunts” of all kinds and throwing salt around like confetti. Who are we as witches? Where does the magic come from? Who are our teachers? What have we taken and how do we give back to the circle? We’re due for an offering to the ancestors. Guest edited by Adèle Barclay and Leah Horlick.
