Thorn Mooney is the high priestess of Foxfire Coven, in the Gardnerian tradition of Wicca. Active in witchcraft and Pagan communities since the late nineties, Thorn takes a scholarly approach to her practice of the Craft. With graduate degrees in religious studies and English literature, Thorn has spent her career teaching religious history, critical theory, literature, and writing to students of all ages, at both the university and grade school level. She is interested in how witchcraft communities construct authenticity, establish boundaries, and interact with other traditions in an increasingly diverse religious landscape, particularly in the American South. She runs a popular YouTube channel and is an active blogger. Her publications include Traditional Wicca: A Seekers Guide, with more in the works. Thorn’s work has appeared in Witches & Pagans Magazine, on Patheos Pagan, and in assorted Llewellyn annuals. Visit her at www.thornthewitch.com and follow her on Instagram @thornthewitch.
