The Literary Cauldron is a new poetry and art site created by Gret McGilvray, owner of The Witchery. The Witchery is a creative space in Salem, MA. Each year, we attract thousands of people to our website to book workshops and readings. We love poetry and want to share this with our visitors. Our hope is that these thousands of people will click on our link to read your poetry. Let's dream big!
Gret launched this site in the winter of 2021 when Mercury was safely out of retrograde. The shop was temporarily closed due to the pandemic and solitude became the perfect breeding ground for a new creative venture. Our site started as a way to hold space for Salem poets, but soon became a place for poets and artists from around the globe.
The Literary Cauldron considers many types of poetry, but our favorite is experimental poetry such as blackout, cut-up, remix, free-verse and poetry set to music and video. We seek art/photography as well. To find out more or to submit your work for consideration,
