Denver Witch Quarterly is a magazine devoted to paganism, Wicca, witchcraft, magick, and the occult.

In this issue, one will find a brief history of the chief editor’s involvement with the small press Wiccan and pagan magazines of the 1990s, an involvement that helped inspire the creation of this magazine.

Also included are several humor bits, an editorial about the importance of voting as a witch, an essay on the likelihood that a witch might curse you or your unborn child, a sephirothic (Tree of Life) prayer to the goddess, Isis; two poems (one involving Witch Girl Scouts selling cookies), and a short story set in H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos that shows a horrifying aspect of the god, Odin (Woden).

There is also a book review of Liber L. Vel Bogus (Richard T. Cole), a book that claims that the infamous magician, Aliester Crowley, faked the receivership of the first Thelemic Holy Books, the Book of the Law.

Finally, there are suggestions to potential advertisers, and notes about the business practices, editing and payment policies of Denver Witch Quarterly for potential contributors.

Contributors to this issue: Morgan Drake Eckstein, House of Bast Art Studio, and ceramic artist, Khari Seshent (owner of Khari’s Wiccan Treasures, and Celtic Soul Jewelry and Pottery).

About Denver Witch Quarterly

Denver Witch Quarterly is an ebook/print-on-demand format magazine. DWQ publishes on an irregular basis (if we don’t have enough material, we do not go to press); ideally publishing four times a year, with additional special issues focused on various topics. While DWQ is based out of Denver, Colorado USA, our audience is international, and we accept submissions and advertising from all over the world. Heck, if Venusians and Martians wanted to take out ads, we would sell ad-space to them too. The same holds true for submissions. DWQ is the sister magazine to Quantum Entanglement (which focuses on science fiction, fantasy, some horror, and fandom), and shares a common set of editorial and administrative policies. This is an edited magazine; we do reject horrible submissions, and will edit borderline submissions. Contributors are paid quarterly plus sixty days based on the royalty reports received by that time. Payment is based on the weighted contributor share. Payout threshold is five dollars (USD), and is paid though PayPal. Contributors can request a reasonable advertising advance to help cover the costs of their own advertising. Deadlines: Imbolc/Ostara (December 21st), Beltane/Litha (March 21st), Lugnnasa/Mabon (June 24th), Samhain/Yule (September 21st). The opinions expressed by contributors are their own, and carry no endorsement by DWQ. Denver Witch Quarterly is also not responsible for business transactions between the public and our advertisers.

Email submissions to basttemple@msn.com (We accept .doc and .docx [Times New Roman], and jpegs.) Include pen-name, Paypal address, legal tax name, and brief bio.

Email publication grade advertising to the same email address; payment to be made to the same address on PayPal.

Advertising rates for next issue (Samhain/Yule 2016): Business Card (3.5 w x 2 h) $10 USD; Quarter Page (3.5 w x 5 h) $15 USD; Half Page (7.5 w x 5 h) $25 USD; Full Page (7.5 w x 9.5 h) $50. Classifieds 10 cents (USD) a word. Free events (non-profit/no-charge) get a free hundred word classified, provided that the event occurs before next issue release date. (Advertising rates subject to change—consult the current issue for current rates.)

Statement of Principles

Denver Witch Quarterly does not accept materials that advocate, promote or reflect discrimination or intolerance based on race, gender, sexual orientation, profession, etc.

Submission call

For the next issue, besides seeking Samhain and Yule themed material, our usual mixture of fiction, poetry and humor, DWQ is also looking for submissions (editorials and articles) related to the mass hexing of Brock Turner and to mass workings meant to bind political entities, such as ISIL.
