"The essence of Pagan ritual is creativity. In Composing Magic, Elizabeth Barrette offers tested techniques for nourishing that creativity in the service of magical wordsmithing-in simple spells, ballads and poetry, and in the creation of large-group ritual. Composing Magic blends the craft of poetry and the Craft of magic in one dish." --Chas S. Clifton, author of Her Hidden Children: The Rise of Wicca and Paganism in America "Once upon a time bards healed the sick with song, chanted for rain, and toppled kings with finely-crafted verses. With Composing Magic, Elizabeth Barrette reclaims the power of words for a new generation. This is a smart, well-crafted book that teaches you how to write smart, well-crafted rituals and magical poetry. If you want to slay the dragons of doggerel and the chimeras of cliche, arm thyself with Composing Magic." --Kenaz Filan, managing editor of newWitch "Here's the practicing Pagan poet's perfect primer!" --Barbara Ardinger, Ph.D., author of Pagan Every Day "This is something that Pagans really, really need (as has become abundantly clear every time I look at my Inbox). The section on rhyming couplets and the appropriate uses thereof should be required reading for everyone who submits to new Witch." --Kenaz Filan
