Tricks, Treats, and Samhain Sweets

There would be no America without the pumpkin. It’s a Halloween icon. But did you know the first jack-o-lanterns were carved from turnips? In this workshop, we’ll delve into magical approaches to Samhain, carve rutabagas (Swedish turnips), and learn a simple spell. Treats and rutabagas provided.

The Juicy Details

Meags Downing is a queer writer, editor, and researcher raised in the Catskills and living in Rochester, NY. She received her B.S. in Literature from SUNY Brockport and studied abroad at the University of Portsmouth. Then she dropped out of grad school, and that’s where the story really begins. After working a soul-sucking job in tech for nearly a decade, she made some career changes that were good for her spirit, and went back to freelance editing and research. Meags is a published poet and is currently working on a book (forthcoming from Cosmographia Books) that is a love-letter to the spooky folklore of New York State. She is an avid researcher of everything from Luciferian scholarship to medieval studies, and loves deconstructing the roots of stories in popular culture. Baba Yaga is #haggoals for her. Meags is a witch with specilalization in protective magics and occult verification research. She love all things Halloween: cozy sweaters, scarecrows, haunted farms, and the rural unknown. She is still slightly bitter that she never got her invitation to the Midnight Society.
