Celebrate Halloween And Womxn Everywhere With The Medusa Project, A Debut Anthology From Mookychick. Download Poetry, Fiction, Artwork And Rituals… For Free.
Back in March 2020, our Poetry Editor Megha Sood considered ways to actively celebrate International Women’s Day. One thing led to another, and Mookychick put out a call for its debut anthology. The theme of womxn’s empowerment resonated with so many of you, and we are wholeheartedly grateful for the hundreds of submissions that flooded through, each connecting with the archetype of the Medusa in ways that reverberated somewhere beneath our skin.
Mookychick’s Poetry Editors Juliette van der Molen and Megha Sood have collated those submissions into 47 powerful works which are now available for you, the reader, to download. For free.
You can download this powerful anthology here.
If pushed, we could use words like ‘raw’ and ‘liminal’ to describe the anthology’s content (and many of these works are indeed one or the other, or both). But sometimes a single adjective won’t do. How do you pour a whole lifetime into one adjective? How do you fit a hundred emotions or a thousand fragments of dream into a single word?
These essays, journeys, magical rituals, art-spells, creative works of poetic truth… in their own ways, they all tap into the myth of the Medusa. Self-realised. Self-determining. They are about finding power in the self.
This anthology has cast its own spell on our souls, and we hope you enjoy it.
With best wishes from Juliette, Megha and the Mookychick Team.
