Up the Witchpunx #4: Radical Hope

e-zine
Up the Witchpunx Radical Hope cover

Emily Dickinson said that hope is the thing with feathers, but the creators of Up the Witchpunx have produced something far grittier and more substantial. Radical Hope is a zine born from punk, witchcraft and street-level activism; it has “claws and teeth.”

Radical Hope “looks like cop cars on fire, politicians resigning in disgrace, and sabotage of planet­-killing industrial capitalism…” However, Radical Hope is also a cultural and spiritual change document, born from the Oly Witch Crew’s collective work in linking activism, occult and magickal work and a punk rock ethos.

Along the way, the writers and artists dispel notions of fluffy new-age sentimentality and do-no-harm politics. “Our magick bashes back. We believe that industrial capitalism, if unchallenged, means the death and defilement of the Goddess and all she represents. Thus hope is found in insurrection, and not in anything else.”

The angels and prophets of Radical Hope are queers, punks and suicide survivors who have clawed their way back from their personal abysses bearing dangerous gifts. Radical Hope is their manifesto.

Includes interviews with artist, dollmaker and healer Kook Teflon and illustrator and The Next World Tarot creator Cristy Road. Featuring work by Rust Belt Jessie, Dylan Ce, Myke Moon, Adriana Lopez, Christian Lee, Malachi Phelps, Spiggy Suarez, GG Irkalla / Lillita Lustre and Ezmyrelda Andrade.

Purity: A Loss for Thesaurus Words explores ideas of White “purity” that have been weaponized – psychologically, politically and linguistically – against Black people. Derilus’ powerful and unique poetic voice explores legacies of Whiteness, using the thesaurus definition of “purity” as a starting point.

Purity: A Loss for Thesaurus Words is pamphlet-length and beautifully formatted to amplify the text.

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.
