Pagan News and Views Since 1998
As we begin our favorite month at Witch School , October, with its special Samhain holiday and Beltane, along with the secular holiday of Halloween, we hope that it finds you in good health and great joy. It is in our prayers that the blessings of the season find you and grant you all that you desire for the holidays.
Witch School has always been focused on public education, teaching to everyone who desires a magickal education, anytime, anywhere. Now, we have launched a new project to deepen that desire, and it is called the Common Book of Wicca and Witchcraft. This book will be created to provide information, history, rituals, prayers, and other concepts that are part of our faith. As a Common book, it will also be free from copyright restrictions allowing every priestess and priest to use it as they desire to teach. It is quite a dream and one that we are uniquely qualified.
What is a Common Book?
It is a book that can be freely shared without restrictions that teach the basics of a faith, religion or ideal. It is a book or document that states the knowledge needed to be understand one’s faith or even the faith of another. In this case our Common Book of Wicca and Witchcraft will have history, rituals, prayers, spells, and more that help understand and teach Wicca and Witchcraft. Once printed this book will be available to for use without the usual copyright restrictions allowing every student, mentor, teacher, priest and priestess to use it without worry, wherever they are globally.
How to Help?
We are looking for help from our members, mentors and students. We are looking at concepts of what you think should go into this book. Further, who we should get to write it, and even volunteer yourself, to be part of the team. Just join our group, and tell us that you would like to join.

The second way to help is to pre-buy a copy and make it possible. We are using a Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds in order to hire editors, curators, and writers, to make this book, which will be available as a eBook, Paperback and Hard Cover, depending on the availability of funds. When we have accomplished this, you will have a great book that you can share with friends and family, without worry of infringing on copyrights of authors and publishers. We find that very exciting.
We have bookmarks to be handmade by M.Rev. Traci Logan Wood, eBook copies for $10, as well as paperback and hardcover options. The more we sell, the better the book.

This is a major project, one that we will focus on during our 13th School year. We thank everyone who can support this, share this, and let people know. It is something we want the entire community to feel part of. We hope that youa re as excited about this project as we are, and support our drive to create a Common Book of Wicca and Witchcraft.
