Arcane Perfection: An Anthology by Queer, Trans & Intersex Witches

e-book Arcane Perfection edited by Pat Mosley. Cover shows green succulent plants and typewriter-style text.

ARCANE PERFECTION is a collection of essays, poetry, art, rage, love, rituals, spells, and musings by, for, and about Queer, Trans, and Intersex Witches. The book began as a coven project to further curate the Witchery of our Queer, Trans, and Intersex members, and then the project was expanded to encompass Queer, Trans, or Intersex people from around the world.

Contributors answer questions like: How have you overcome discrimination? How have you encountered the Divine? What are your experiences with magic as a Queer person? How has Witchcraft empowered your life as a Queer person? Can you tell the story of your transition through the Tarot? What is your relationship to the world, to Pagan community, to Queer community? Do you have a rant that needs to be screamed into publication? How are you uprooting heterocisnormativity in the Pagan community and beyond? How have you dealt with loss, invisibility, violence, disability, racism, power, capitalism, jealousy, change, and love?

Arcane Perfection mixes personal stories with mythology, spiritual and political visions, and actual witchcraft, including rituals and spells such as the “Queer Sovereignty Spell for Pride, Power and Protection,” and the “Deadname Decoy Spell.” Articles like “Queer Bears & Berserkers,” “Candles for Queer Magic,” “The Transgender Body as Holy and Liminal Witchcraft,” and “A Trans Positive Ritual Space” are some of the explorations of queer- and trans-centric magickal practice.

We want Queer, Trans, and Intersex Witches to be able to pick up this book, find their experiences reflected within, and feel surrounded by the magic of others like them.

Road Heart Volcano #6

e-zine Cover image for Road Heart Volcano #6

Road Heart Volcano #6 is a free 20 page e-zine of a personal nature by author, artist and Up the Witchpunx creator gg Irkalla. It is a look into gg’s internal artistic world which often is unseen in Up the Witchpunx, as well as things gg has pulled out of her archive and pieces of zines from years back.

Gg reflects on rural punk movements, rural culture, and her unorthodox childhood in the essay “Heathen Hicks, Styxx and Bricks.” She gets into one of the themes that has defined her work with zines and activism so far, the emerging connection between witchcraft and punk rock subcultures.

The zine explores collaborative art made by gg and Dylan Ce on personal mythology, rural culture, and a concept the two writer/artists developed together, the texture web or “yin:web.” The textural or yin web is an effort to reclaim a DIY, unpolished internet that serves the purposes of discovery, magick and artistic creation rather than searchability, filter bubbles and NSA spying.

Road Heart Volcano is an essential for fans of punk, witchcraft, cultural critique and any of gg’s previous work.
