Sophia Bonnie Wodin and I will be repeating our six-week “Writing for Witches” course in October and November. We have designed the curriculum specifically for people who wish to write both as witches and for witches. Each class will focus on a specific topic and will also offer writing prompts that will inspire us to work magic with our words and bring us face to face with our willingness to write for ourselves, our communities and the health of Mother Earth.
There is so much we could have covered, but we managed to distil it into the following themes and topics:
- Mythic musings (finding and calling a magical writer’s ally, working with fairy tales and myths)
- Working as a creative ally for the natural world (eco poetry and prose)
- Writing for your magical practice (spells, blessings, writing by the cycles of the moon)
- Writing for ritual (meditations, element calls, honouring deity)
- Finding community and sharing your work (how to set up a writing blog, using social media, getting published)
- Final Bardic Circle to share and celebrate our writing.
It is our sincere hope that we can inspire and support more witches to write and to share their work, especially during these challenging times. However, we think that no matter what your interest as a writer or your practice as a witch, this course will offer something new for you to learn.
This course helped me claim that I am a witch and recognize how many parts of my life are rooted in nature and her cycles. ~ Kate
This class has been an anchor and reminded me how important my writing practice is. ~ Chantal
