Pagan Community Notes: Theoi.com, FaerieCon Seattle, BBC petition and more

The site Theoi.com is closing its doors. Run by Aaron Atsma, the site has been a go-to resource for polytheists since its opening in 2000.

I’ve been a part of Faerieworlds Events for a couple years now, working on event programming, and they are truly vibrant gatherings that should please any Pagan who loves art, music, performance, and craft. This year, I was honored to moderate a panel of artists who have created tarot and oracle decks. The panel included Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, creator of the Shadowscapes Tarot, Linda Ravenscroft, illustrator of the Mystic Faerie Tarot, and Amy Brown, who created the Faery Wisdom oracle deck with her mother.
