  • Additional info

    We want to be a supportive home and platform for established and emerging writers worldwide, no matter how they identify. Together, we can celebrate each other through the magical act of writing. Let's cause some toil and trouble! We specifically love anything witchy, folky, nature-related, creepy, weird, experimental, flawed, speculative, explicit-with-a-purpose, or mystical. If your piece doesn't quite fit any of these descriptors, don't worry! We welcome anything, especially if it has clearly been written with heart. We welcome multiple submissions in different mediums, but (in the case that your submission is successful) only one piece will be accepted.
