We finally moved out of our horrible apartment. it was an overpriced mold-infested studio in a heavily gentrified section of downtown olympia. Now we rent two rooms in a beautiful witchy punk beach house on the outskirts of olympia. This move has been extremely good for my physical and mental health. After 3 years of awful black mold exposure I am finally beginning to detox. Tasks with the zine which were a huge struggle before, are now beginning to come together more easily.

We have suffered a lot of setbacks with Radical Hope, such as the theft of several hundred dollars from our lock box and my declining health. But we are working very hard to get settled into our new office /living space/temple, and in the next few weeks The final stage of the zine will be much easier to get through. I truly believe we can look at officially releasing all zine related material this October.

Thank you for your patience!

The Resilience Anthology is… “the largest collection of literature to exclusively feature transgender women and CAMAB (coercively assigned male at birth) non-binary writers.”

I am honored that my short piece, “Godless, I am a Rose” will be in this anthology. It is a Babalon-inspired gnosis, a trio of vignettes about schizophrenia, the Lilit, sex magick, initiation, ordeal, and spirit work. Guaranteed to piss off christians, terfs, and your dad.

Check out the Kickstarter and tell your friends about it!

Up the Witchpunx Radical Hope is close to being finished. 34 of 40 pages have gone through rough pre-editing and pre-layout. ive made all the headers for articles, gotten a really nice big bitmap library together all optimized for black and white, and got it all into a shared folder so my editor can finish it all. Now she just has to figure out how to edit my 27 page article into 5 pages but. you can still read the 27 page article in the digital version of the zine via Dylan Ce ‘s cutlines press . So we just have to figure out a 5 page summary!

check out the promo video for the relaunch of our crowdfundingcampaign !

We slashed our goal in half, made it way easier to get rad digital zines at lower backing levels, and made the whole thing simpler. See more on our campaign page!

Please note, all links below will not work, as they link to our previous campaign, which failed. We believe this is because we were asking for too much, which is why we slashed the goal in half this time. All we need is for our backers from that campaign to re-pledge, and 250 dollars in addition to that. ( We wanted to go with 300, but 500 is the minimum)

The new official email for all things UTWPX zine related is upthewitchpunx@riseup.net. I am sorry to anyone who has sent emails to horse9@riseup.net to find it was eaten by the mailer daemon. I had to make a new riseup alias due to spam.

The original plan was a spring issue and a fall issue for 2016. We are still planning on two issues per year but due to unexpected personal problems there had to be a delay. The plan is for two issues to be released some time between August and December. There will be a kickstarter campaign fairly soon and this time rewards may include 3d printed wxpx merch!

If you have any submissions/art/poetry/rants please send them to me at upthewitchpunx@riseup.net. Anything about radical witchcraft is great though in upcoming issues we are focusing on topics such as: the role of the witch in the surveilance state, hope as a radical act, and the current explosion of punk as fuck tarot projects.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………. The Up the Witchpunx Kickstarter was a huge success. I made a few mistakes along the way, but it was all a constructive process. With all the pledges that came in I got close to the neighborhood of 600 dollars. This produced 65 copies of issue 2 and 65 copies of issue 3, both with front and back color covers. The kickstarter for issue 4 starts in January 2017. Please let me know if you want to get involved in any way! upthewitchpunx@riseup.net

Below are some aural ventures into the world this project explores.

Up the Punx is a phrase supposedly started by the Casualties song; urban dictionary seems to think its punk rocks joke about itself but there doesnt seem to be any real consensus about exactly what it means except that we as societies trash are adorable and brilliant and we love ourselves and each other. I heard it a bunch in a ghost mice song the day i met kimya D so i decided to call my zine Up the Witch Punx. I just deleted all the articles on this site cause i woke up this morning and felt like they were stupid. So I deleted them. I guess what Im saying here is I respect materialistic nihilism but after 30+ years of it, its starting to get boring, so lets try something different. Dharma Punx was a great idea for a lot of reasons, so maybe we could borrow the cultural source code and do the same thing with witchcraft, why not? It could be really fun and it could teach us stuff about ourselves that we need to learn.

for all inquiries, questions, or requests for zines…
