Intro to Practical Spellwriting


The construction of effective spellwork is an essential tool for practical witches. While some paths provide traditional spells, chants and charms that can be called upon for particular workings, many budding witches or experimental practitioners struggle to draw up new, unique spellwork without historical traditions to draw upon.

In this inter-faith, process-based workshop, we will explore how a mastery of correspondences, symbolism, and historical reference text can help inform our spellwork, and lead us to more comprehensive, informed, and effective spell writing practices.
