Can you explore multiple traditions within the same practice? Chaos magick says, Yes, of course, but Donyae Coles reminds us to be respectful of how we do so in “Working with multiple pantheons: A beginner’s guide.”
Not all witchcraft tools appear in your average grimoire.

A Pagan editor laments about unsuitable pitches, and this editor relates to the point of headdesk.
We absolutely adore pitches, new writers are wonderful, and they can bring really interesting and insightful ideas to the table. However, there are some things we don’t cover, and if you’re at all familiar with the magazine, you’ll already know that.
We’ve created so many guides to help new people through the process of writing a professional pitch:
- Submission guidelines
- Review guidelines
- How to write a pitch
- On assignment letters
- How editing works
- On publication
Some of these are specific to our publication, but most of them apply wherever you’re pitching to — from other occult journals to The New York Times, this is pretty much how it goes.
If there’s anything else we can do to help, please let us know.
