  • Spider Redgold I offer IT skills private email lists either on one of my domain as or assistance to manage elists on magoacademy domain. I do not have the personal resources to offer $$$ but can offer time and technical or magical expertise, by email or by skype.

I can write book reviews for Amazon book websites (short and informal ones) or a formal one for blogs and websites including Return to Mago E-Magazine, Mago Books, and The Girl God. I can offer my articles and my book, which is forthcoming. Here is a further thought-we could make podcasts featuring our work available on social media as well, adding audio to the visual and written.
  • Alaya Dannu Well, I can offer my web design skills – I’m pretty savvy, but not an industry expert. I have many resources on copyright free photos, fonts, templates…I’m currently enrolled in an MFA Creative Nonfiction program so I can assist with proofreading or editing [if extra eyes are needed].

I can also offer to write material based on the oracular nature of dreams, and dream interpretation that is not within the andro/Eurocentric/western perspective – I would use the dreams I’ve had, however, they all feature the Great Mother and antiquated philosophical themes that are found in ancient civilizations. This provides a very different interpretation and perspective on a lot of what is taught today about dreams.
