What’s Inside This Issue?
I am Rachel Gare, a witch and the lead character in my own story, Thorn Trees.
This gazette issue continues our focus on the portrayal of witches in entertainment (film and television) throughout the years. We share clips of content on subjects discussed in The Portrayal of Witches in Entertainment discussion event on Zoom, feature the Thorn Trees producing team interviewed on a lively That Witch Life podcast, and provide plenty of stories curated from online content around the world (in videos, photos, and articles) about witches, witchcraft, Wiccans, Pagans, and kindred souls.
There’s a special hearty and heartfelt THANK YOU to the Thorn Trees Crowdfunding Campaign contributors who requested this as a giving incentive/reward! Due to their generosity, the campaign was a success; in fact, we exceeded our goal! In fact, Rachel’s Gazette is now funded to continue a a result.
Rachel Speaks, my editorial, is different in this edition. It’s a letter written to me by my friend Victoria concerning her distress after attending a Shakespeare play featuring witches in the plot, followed by my reply to its content.
Finally, there are a few invitations in this issue for you. One, to attend a planned Witches in Business: Issues & Solutions Zoom event hosted by witches about witches in business. Two,an invitation to actors and actresses interested in performing a virtual table reading of the pilot. Both of these events are planned for Spring 2021.
I am grateful to exist through space and time among friends to share this experience.
