About Wyrd Words & Effigies

What Is Wyrd Words & Effigies & What’s It About?

Wyrd Words & Effigies blog is a celebration of the strange and shadowy, of the damned and unseen. It is a path through the dark to wild, forbidden places. A journey across boundaries, which separate this world from others.

It works to feed into a wider, dark consciousness, and hopefully encourage individual growth, as the moon continues on its path.


Wyrd Words & Effigies blog functions as a space for; dark fashion, alternative lifestyles, dark literature, witchcraft and pagan spiritualism, black metal, experimental and ritualistic music, offbeat films, in-depth interviews, relevant reviews, articles and links and unsettling visual art and photography. It’s a place where the shadowy can come to feel at home, supported and celebrated.

About Katie The Creator Of Wyrd Words & Effigies


My name is Katie Metcalfe and I am an English woman living in Sweden. I am a poet, blogger, photographer, publisher, enthusiast of the macarbe and pagan witch with a Northern fever. I’m generally too wyrd for most people.

Wyrd Words & Effigies was established in 2013 to document my obsession with everything unsettling and to celebrate, inspire and support shadowy creatives. It’s a place for wyrdos to come and feel at home.

I’m the author of several books, including In The Hours Of Darkness, a collection of poetry inspired by death, the occult and lunacy. I’m also the founder of A Living Witch blog.

If you’re interested in learning more about me follow the links below, you can also find me interviewed here on Vargamor, here on Bleaq and here on Unquiet Things.

Stay forever wyrd, Katie.
