With courage, conviction, and a fierce love and respect for the craft, Modern Craft is a fiery collection poised to spark vital conversations and radical change in the world of witchcraft and beyond.

The new collection explores witchcraft practice and the ethics of magic, giving that much-needed modern context to timeless wisdom. It offers a fascinating snapshot of contemporary occult practice viewed through an intersectional lens.

Essay topics include: the ethics of decolonization, meditations on what it means to honour Mother Earth during the Anthropocene, the reclamation of agency for working-class and queer witches through practical spellwork, a gender-fluid perspective on breaking down traditional hierarchies in magical symbolism, a day in the life of a disabled Pagan Irish practitioner.

Inspiring and electrifying glimpses from the brink of the contemporary Craft, these essays show how anyone, no matter who they are, can find positivity and the force for change in the subversive unknown.

We're thrilled to have Jessica Gaitán Johannesson host editors and contributors for a magical, participatory "event-meets-ritual" launch for this fascinating new book.
