At the crossroads of #MeToo, #HexthePatriarchy, and the increasingly vocal feminist and LGBTQ+ movements comes a highly readable and moving collection of writings

The difference between the witch and the layperson is that a witch already knows they are powerful. The layperson may only suspect. Becoming Dangerous is a collection of deeply personal essays by marginalized people operating at the intersection of feminism, witchcraft, and resistance about summoning power and becoming fearsome in a world that would prefer them to be afraid. Written by women artists, authors, columnists, comic book writers, fashionistas, performers, and video game designers, these essays are personal explorations about how and why rituals of resistance work for them. Their goal is to help readers summon their own power to resist, survive, and thrive.


Katie West is a writer, photographer, editor, director, and executive assistant. She was recently published in The Secret Loves of Geek (Dark Horse, edited by Hope Nicholson). She has published several volumes of a photographic magazine called Babefest that brings women together to create, share, and support one another. She also directed the music video for the Seven Saturdays single "Au Revoir," and she has a comic with Ray Fawkes in the upcoming anthology Haunted Tales of Gothic Love (Bedside Press, edited by Hope Nicholson).
