Spellbinding Reads: Community

In this section, we at Moon-Birds will regularly offer recommendations from our own witchy, weird, wild, and wicked playlists. Feast your ears on this, and get magickal. 


Writing may often be a solitary act, but being a writer is not a solitary identity. Scattered across the world are fellow writers supporting each other, sharing work and offering optimism after an unpersonalized rejection from a dream journal. This week’s recommended readings come from writers we know either personally, from a reading event, from a recommendation, or through the power (sometimes misused) of Twitter.
