The Way of Witch Mission Statement
The Way of Witch features emerging voices from the growing witchcraft, pagan and magickal/occult communities. Every month, we provide thought-provoking content that helps witches along all stages of their paths; that supports them in their journeys toward self-healing and self-sovereignty.
Equally important, the articles we publish should engage, inform, teach and entertain. By all means, weave us a tale around our themes! We love a good story paired with a ritual, recipe, sigil, spell, tarot spread, writing prompt or other feature that engages the reader.
By and large, our online community consists of fully engaged witches, pagans and magickal practitioners. So our written content should share the tales of our magickal experiences and hard fought knowledge with our readership. In short, if you haven’t lived the magick, this is not the right place for you to publish! Above everything else, we value authenticity.
All Love, No Hate
The Way of Witch fosters an inclusive community featuring the voices of witches of all walks of life. We welcome contributions from witches and pagans of all races, religions, ages, backgrounds the LGBTQAII+ community as well as chronically ill and disabled practitioners and those living with mental illness. As a result, no bigotry of any kind will be tolerated: that means no racism, sexism, transphobia, biphobia, homophobia or xenophobia or other hatred.
The Way of Witch Magazine is currently a free publication with no advertisement. As a result, we cannot pay you directly. Though we will happily provide a tip jar on your articles and profiles. All you need is a Paypal.me or venmo account. We are working toward a sustainable business model that will allow for us to pay writers directly but it will take some time. You will make money before we turn a profit.
As an additional benefit, you are also more than welcome to provide links for crafts or services on your author page. You will also have a featured bio that will appear below your articles and in your profile. Above all, writers retain copyright to their own work. We ask that you inform us if your work has been accepted elsewhere for publication so that we may take it down from The Way of Witch. Duplicate submissions are bad for search engine rankings!
