In this issue of Brainscan, Alex Wrekk (Stolen Sharpie Revolution) discusses the individualized witchcraft practice she's pieced together over the past decade. While documenting her journey, she looks at a variety of other witchcraft traditions, why they didn't fully work for her, and why secular witchcraft is just as valid as any other form. She also gives plenty of history and context to help understand terms that often get lumped together (Wicca, Pagan, etc), and critiques the cultural appropriation and consumerism that often arise in modern witchcraft manifestations.

The zine can also serve as a how-to guide to building your own practice. She encourages readers who are interested to figure out their own path, and to simply view her story as inspiration to seek something that works for them.

64 pages, quarter legal-sized. Vellum overlays, cardstock cover, and hand-stitched binding with acorn pendants. Illustrations by Steve Larder.

In the wake of the controversy surrounding a recent viral article about spending a week "becoming a witch," Alex considers what her guide to a witchcraft practice would look like. The results are a day-by-day guide to trying out her particular variety of secular witchcraft (that she lovingly refers to as "DIY witchery").

Within: cleaning-as-cleansing, everyday altars, grounding and centering, perception and animism, correspondences, sigils, spells, divination, and more. An open and accessible zine that thinks about witchcraft in a way not often presented in print. 

52 pages, quarter-size.

An absolute classic of zine literature and a necessary part of any DIY library, now in a revised and updated edition. Accessible, fun, and useful for all interest and experience levels.
