Becoming Dangerous: witchy femmes, queer conjurers, and magical rebels on summoning the power to resist is a nonfiction book of deeply personal essays by marginalised people operating at the intersection of feminism, witchcraft, and resistance to summon power and become fearsome in a world that would prefer them afraid. 

In this book, twenty-one writers share the rituals they use to bring themselves power in a world that prefers them powerless. These are their rituals to resist and survive self-doubt, grief, and depression; immigration, slut-shaming, and the patriarchy; ableism, racism, and other systems of oppression. Some identify as witches while others identify as writers, musicians, or artists. Their essays are personal explorations about how and why rituals of resistance work for them. 
You may start believing they can work for you, too.
