Literary Witches celebrates the most witchy women of the literary world with beautiful illustrations and mini creative bios.

From Shirley Jackson to Jamaica Kincaid, the featured writers lived and wrote with fierce, and at times very dark, tendencies, which the author/illustrator honor through poetic imaginations of their witchy qualities. The list of women featured in this collection is diverse, and includes both the well-known and the obscure: Emily Dickinson and Virginia Woolf to the canonized but more obscure Mira Bai and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz.

For book lovers and the scores of women adopting "coven" monikers and celebrating all things witchy, this list will provide both new insights on the most beloved authors and suggestions for new writers to discover. And importantly, Literary Witches asserts the witch as a visionary figure of female empowerment, formidable creative resources, and general badassery.
