Anya Bergman, Juno Dawson and Emilia Hart in conversation

Witching Hour

The Hive

Channel your inner witch with writers Anya Bergman, Juno Dawson and Emilia Hart, as they chat all things ‘witch lit’. Bergman’s debut novel, The Witches of Vardø, is a vividly detailed story of female adventure and emancipation during the Vardø witch trials in 17th- century Norway, while Dawson’s Her Majesty’s Royal Coven and its sequel The Shadow Cabinet imagine a UK in which witches have their own – secret – government department. Hart’s Weyward is about three women in different times, trapped by the whims of men. The trio talk about what makes witcherature so enduringly popular, how their characters seek to reclaim what is meant by the word ‘witch’, and discuss their favourite witches in popular culture.
