HCQ: A New Quarterly Journal

After a labor intensive process the premiere issue of Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly is finally here! Conceived by Denise Alvarado (The Voodoo Hoodoo Spellbook, Voodoo Dolls in Magick and Ritual, The Voodoo Doll Spellbook)  and her business partner Sharon Marino and brought to you by Planet Voodoo, Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly is described as

“a Journal of the Magickal Arts with a Special Focus on New Orleans Voodoo, Hoodoo, Folk Magic and Folklore. It explores historical and contemporary information about the conjure arts, including magico-religious practices, spiritual traditions, indigenous healing and herbalism, and religions with their roots in the African Diaspora.”

Comprised of 100 pages, Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly contains several recipes, a template for a hoodoo-doll, formulas, spells, tutorials, beautiful art and photographs, as well as articles written by some of today’s most talented writers and practitioners. Some of the articles featured in the premiere issue of Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly include:

  • The Origin of the Root, Denis Alvarado.
  • Secrets of Sex Magick, Sharon Marino
  • What is Real Hoodoo?, Matthew Venus

Hoodoo and Conjure Quarterly is a full-color journal published four times as year and is bound in the same manner as a paper-back book. As the first of its kind, it will definitely become a collector’s item.
