"We called the four corners. We called magic makers of all kinds. We called for spells for survival, tinctures of remedy, gossip, renewal rituals, new moon intentions, full moon feels, and astrology memes. We asked for writing that plays between the worlds, that conjures new worlds, that heals the world we live in. And witches, you delivered." — From "Love Letter from the Editors" by Leah Horlick and Adèle Barclay
Join us to celebrate the launch of Coven at Massy Books on Sunday May 27th. There will be poetry, tarot, astrology and surely some magic.
