Have you ever thought about the fact that you put a series of symbols on a piece of paper or a screen, share it with others, and directly transmit messages and ideas that can change their consciousness? It's called writing and I say it's actual magic - and I'm not alone! This solo episode is a brief exploration of the links between writing and magic from both a historical and practical perspective, including how we understand art, the imaginal, magic, and scholarship.
