Archetypes are real. Muses are real. Writers are the channels of these spirits & if that sounds like witchcraft that’s because it is. These stories gave me chills. Sylvia Plath & Lana Del Rey course through the veins of these dark, sexy, mind-bending, fantastical, romantic, & haunting tales. Authors from different genres came together in their love & passion for these muses.
