Missing Witches began as a podcast. We uncover true histories and interview real practitioners of Witchcraft and other occulted practices, as well as artists, poets, academics, and activists who are conjuring better possible worlds.
We’re dedicated to creating an intersectional, feminist history of ideas; sharing marginalized ideas about what’s POSSIBLE; and helping to build communities of care with other magical beings.
Missing Witches is an excuse for us to do the research we were longing to do, into the ideas and people we felt deeply were missing from our lives. Missing Witches is a labour of love, research, and web-weaving.
That podcast birthed a book, with another book forthcoming, and continues to take new shapes thanks to the contributions – material and philosophical – of our community.
Missing Witches is co-created by Amy and Risa: Witches, artists, activists, and perpetual students living out in the woods on unceded Anishinabek territory, in Quebec, Canada.
Note: In a spirit of reparations, we donate our monthly earnings to the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal each May, and organize an annual fundraiser and conversation with indigenous thinkers to help unpack some of the appropriation and spiritual bypassing that happens in Witch worlds. Check out the 2021 fundraiser + episode here, and the 2022 fundraiser + episode here, and contact us to get involved: email@example.com.
The Missing Witches Coven is:
- a witchy, science-loving study group/informal book club working collaboratively to seek and center marginalized ideas and possibilities.
- a place to unmask and to be like little kids together, playing with the magic in the world, celebrating moments of JOY.
- a mutually-supportive space to be honest about how fucked up racism, misogyny, misogynoir, ableism, heteronormativity and capitalism are and to mourn, and also to CACKLE WICKEDLY and HOWL WILDLY together as we seed within ourselves and each other ways to survive, resist, re-enchant and FLOURISH.
