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.

If you feel that your work would fit the Wyrd Words & Effigies premise, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org I would enjoy talking with you, and potentially reviewing and/or exhibiting your work. Also, if you’re interested in collaborating on a project, I’d be more than happy to hear about any dark creative ideas.
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 are just a few of the themes I explore. I’m also the founder of A Living Witch blog.
Stay forever wyrd, Katie.
