This Year’s Magickal Women Conference

The third in person Magickal Women Conference will be held in Birmingham England at the Birmingham & Midland Institute the weekend of June 22/23.

The event website states:

“The Magickal Women Conference brings together academics, independent researchers, practitioners, artists, authors, and other creators to share their wisdom and knowledge in an array of events, both live and online. Our previous events can be found at the bottom of this page; our current events can be found here.”

On Facebook they announced:

“We pay homage to the women of the past who challenged the status quo by embracing mysticism, esotericism, and occult teachings, and to those who continue those rich traditions through lived practice, performance, and adeptship. We honour all women, whether female by birth or not; please read our statement on trans women, non-binary and other gender-variant identities here.

“Our Guest of Honour in 2024 is none other than Caitlín Matthews, a writer, singer and teacher whose ground-breaking work has introduced many to the riches of our western spiritual heritage. Our Artist-in-Residence is Charlotte Rodgers, an artist and author who is also an animist and nondenominational practising witch and magickian. Our Storyteller-in-Residence is Elizabeth Jane Lovely, an artist whose experimentation encompasses the written form, oral storytelling, ceremonial chant, and spell speaking. They are joined by 22 other speakers, covering a diverse range of topics, with some returning to the conference and some new to our event.”
