Sabat Magazine’s Maiden Issue launched this spring, and within it editor Elisabeth Krohn explores witchcraft in our modern culture. We recognized many of the artists and writers featured from our own backlog of posts here on Haute Macabre, and welcomed the many friendly faces to the printed page.
“In my 1990s fantasy, Witches are the quintessential cool-girls. Clad all in black, their makeshift covens made a variety of characters possible; I would morphose from the nihilist spiky punk to a more accommodating dark reincarnation of Stevie Nicks, depending on the mood of the day. More hard-hitting than Buffy, I wanted them always on my team to avenge all injustice.” Editor’s Letter by Elisabeth Krohn
Dedicated to the teen Witches of all ages, exploring Witchcraft today, Sabat Magazine has brought together artists living in the shadow worlds of today: in depth interviews with Segovia Amil, Lisen Haglund (@nattskiftet) and Rik Garrett, a discussion on the popularity of occult imagery on social media with WitcheryWay and NyxTurna & others, Pam Grossman’s take on the maiden archetype, Tarot overviews, editorials by Nona Limmen and Ellen Rogers, and much, much more.
