Rebecca Tamás

Rebecca Tamás works as a Lecturer in Creative Writing at York St John University; and her poetry and criticism have been published in The White Review, The London Review of Books, and Granta, amongst others. She is the editor, with Sarah Shin, of Spells: Occult Poetry for the 21st Century, published by Ignota Books. Her first full length collection of poetry, WITCH came out from Penned in the Margins in 2019. It is a Poetry Book Society Spring Recommendation, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Irish Times and White Review’s ‘Book of the Year’ and The Paris Review Staff Pick.



With WITCH, Tamás taps into the reinvigorated interest in witchcraft, especially in feminist and queer circles. She speaks to Sophia Kier-Byfield about ecological thinking and the pedagogical potential of poetry to address the environmental crisis.

The team of MAI supporters and contributors is always expanding. We’re honoured to have a specialist collective of editors, whose enthusiasm & talent gave birth to MAI.

However, to turn our MAI dream into reality, we also relied on assistance from high-quality experts in web design, development and photography. Here we’d like to acknowledge their hard work and commitment to the feminist cause. Our feminist ‘thank you’ goes to:
