Contributor Update, Elissa Washuta

Join Superstition Review in congratulating past contributor, Elissa Washuta, for her forthcoming book White Magic, out April 27th. Elissa, in this collection of essays, “writes about land, heartbreak,… colonization,…life without the escape hatch of intoxication, and… how she became a powerful witch.” “She interlaces stories from her forebears with cultural artifacts from her own life—Twin Peaks, the Oregon Trail II video game, a Claymation Satan, a YouTube video of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham—to explore questions of cultural inheritance and the particular danger, as a Native woman, of relaxing into romantic love under colonial rule.”

“Elissa Washuta’s newest collection of essays is coming out in 2021—and they may be exactly what you need right now.”
