Writing and witchcraft have much in common—a conjuring, a lot of mystery, feelings of being hexed or blessed as we labor at our work. Also, both writers and witches struggle to ‘own’ these terms, fearing they haven’t published enough to be a ‘real’ writer, or haven’t set their crystals under the full moon enough to be a ‘real’ witch. Obviously, all of this is hogwash. In this workshop, both writers and witches at all levels will come together to merge ritual with their creative practices. This generative workshop will use prompts from Tarot and other metaphysical traditions, as well as draw from contemporary literature with magical content. Mystical practices such as meditation, altar-building, moon observation, and other occult activities will be engaged in with the intention of approaching work from new angles, rejuvenating personal writing disciplines, and increasing confidence in your ability to wrestle with the ethereal energies that create both literature and ritual.
