Witches was founded in early 2019 by Ellen, a Journalism student from Falmouth University, UK. Her aim being to always create a sense of community amongst witches, no matter what you practise! After a year, she has moved onto pastures new and handed over the reigns to her mum, Laura, who has been running it since.

Witches has a fabulous team:

Vanessa Tait, Editor: Edits the written submissions making them Witches proof!


Alice Musgrove, Sub Editor: Proof reads the final draft, and casts her critical eye!


David Whalley, Art Editor: Checks out that the final copy looks its best, including his photography.


The Contributors. Some have been with Witches from the beginning, some dip in and out. All are welcome.

And finally, there is Laura O'Rourke, Editor-in-Chief: Does everything else, even makes a daily witchy brew! 

While Witches is based in the UK, it has been created to be enjoyed worldwide

It's pretty simple, really. Witches is all about inclusivity, and giving witches across the world a chance to have a voice. If you'd like to shout about your craft, excellent! Witches provides a space for you to do just that. It's all about being at one with nature, in every aspect, love Mother Earth!


Laura runs the magazine on a non-profit basis; to her, it's about creating a space for a minority group within the media - not about making millions. If you share this ethic and passion for witchcraft, and have something to bring to the table, don't hesitate to get in touch. 


Have you got something witchy and wonderful that you'd like to share with us? Are you a creative witch?

We're always welcoming writers, illustrators and creatives to add to our community. Head to the Submissions page to find out more!
