Cunning Folk is an independent magazine. We’re keen to cover what we think is a much-needed middle ground in occult literature.

“To innovate, we have to imagine.” This is the thread that connects all we aim to publish. It’s something artists and scientists at the forefront of their respective fields have always understood — you don’t find new ideas only by learning by rote what has come before, but by imagining new possibilities and setting foot into the unknown.

Through journalism, personal essays, scholarly articles and short stories, we’re curious to reflect on the relevance of the occult, folklore, mythology, and magic in our world today.
