In 20 years of publishing Brainscan zine there is one incredibly important thing in my life that I have not written about, and that is witchcraft. I am a witch and I have been studying and practicing witchcraft for over a decade and it has been a very useful tool in my life and personal growth.

This zine is a not a how-to-witch zine. This zine is an issue of Brainscan that just happens to be about witchcraft told through my personal narrative.

In this zine I explore what witchcraft is, how I became interested in it, how I built my own practice as an agnostic secular witch and how that differs from a lot of contemporary witchcraft. I share a glimpse of what my personal practice as a non-pagan and non-Wiccan witch looks like.

I also examine my personal issues with modern pagan and witchcraft culture addressing things like racism, cultural appropriation, colonialism, capitalism, the excessive gendering of all things. My politics are intersectional and so is my witchcraft.

I also discuss some tips and a few resource for those that might be interested in exploring witchcraft for themselves.

I have already reviewed this zine here on Etsy so here is why I purchased it again: I gave the original copy I bought to my mom! Looking at it again a couple months later, with a few more things I've noticed the second time around- the construction is mindblowingly attentive to detail. I think Alex Wrekk is planning on scaling back the details (don't know if you decided to scale back the level of construction for future runs, you mentioned something about it on instagram) so anyway what I am trying to say is this: buy it now before it changes. Because it is awesome. And go find my previous review if you aren't convinced, and read the rest of the reviews along the way because who am I other than a zine reader?

beautiful! so excited to dive into this a bit deeper but it looks absolutely incredibly printed & bound based on my first flip through. Thank you!

There's several little touches (like the acorn charm on the binding thread, thicker cover, and illustrations) that make it obvious a lot of time and love went into making this zine.
