The Wild Hunt blog is a must-read for those interested in news and events dealing with the modern Pagan and Heathen communities – and religion coverage in general. – M.Z. Hemingway, Get Religion
…a source for smart commentary on a broad range of news, media, and ideas from a pagan perspective. – Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power.
I don’t know where our movement would be without the Wild Hunt. I really appreciate what you guys do, in bringing pagans and polytheists together and it being a source, a voice, covering really important issues. It brings us together with our different ideas and perspectives. – Cernowain Greenman
The Wild Hunt is a daily online news journal, and is the primary destination for those interested in following news and commentary relating to modern Paganism, Heathenry, polytheism, the Occult, New Age, and other similar religions or practices. Since its founding in 2004, The Wild Hunt has grown to become one of the most-visited and popular destinations exploring these topics. Our work has been translated and republished in German, Polish, Icelandic, Spanish, French, Swedish,Thai and more.
In 2004, founder Jason Pitzl began The Wild Hunt as an experiment. He wanted to create a daily blog focusing on news of interest to Pagans. Over the next seven years, Pitzl was the sole writer of The Wild Hunt. During that time, interest in his work expanded. Then, in Summer 2011, The Wild Hunt was recruited to Patheos.com, a central hub site that hosts blogs from many religions.
However, after another year of substantial growth, The Wild Hunt returned to being an independent entity. In the fall of 2012, Pitzl brought on the first two weekly contributors and four monthly columnists. After two more successful years of growth and service, Pitzl retired from his position. Heather Greene took over as managing editor and publisher.
Since that point, The Wild Hunt has continued to evolve into a recognized and thriving independent news outlet with 3 editors, 6 weekly writers, 10 dedicated columnists, and a team of regular guests.
It is our mission to serve our global readership daily with news and commentary, originating from within Pagan, Heathen, and polytheist communities or affecting these communities.
