Summary

The difference between the witch and the layperson is that witches already know they are powerful. The layperson may only suspect.

Edgy and often deeply personal, the 21 essays collected here come from a wide variety of writers. Some identify as witches, others identify as writers, musicians, game developers, or artists. What they have in common is that they've created personal rituals to summon their own power in a world that would prefer them powerless. Here, they share the rituals they use to resist self-doubt, grief, and depression in the face of sexism, slut shaming, racism, patriarchy, and other systems of oppression.

Well rounded collection of essays

A true snap shot of 2017 and of being feminine in America. Lots of references to Trump and the rise of nazism in the US, many stories contained stories of over coming sexual assault. A solid coming of age book.

Lovely radical witchy goodness

Stories that felt like sisters, stories that felt like elders, and stories that taught me things I didn't know I needed to know. Highly recommended for all radical queers and witchy folks of all abilities and cultures.

A Series of Stories

This is a difficult title to review because it isn't 100% cohesive. Overall, I enjoyed the book. There were some essays that I enjoyed over others and some that I skipped altogether. I would have liked to have heard the essays read by their authors - I feel like that would have given this more of a connected feel.
