Effy Winter is a poet, author and sanguine witch from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her work explores eroticism and heartache while portraying the spawning of a carnal hunger for witchery, lust and sacrifice. Profoundly passionate and devastating, her verse thrives with a fleshly breath.

Effy’s heart is aroused by that which burns severely—dark religious art, a widow’s lament, charnels of red roses or a lustful ache in the womb. When she is not birthing her sickly poetry, she is likely to be found practicing witchcraft by candlelight, tending to the sallow flowerbeds inside of her ribcage or praying to a vicious god.

Her debut poetic work, Flowers of the Flesh, was released by Rhythm & Bones Press in May 2019, and her latest romantic collection, Bloodmilk, is forthcoming with Dancing Girl Press.

Effy currently works as a writer for Witch Way Magazine, based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her articles on hereditary witchcraft and the dark practices of a sanguine witch can be found in Witch Way Magazine’s digital and printed issues. Become a subscriber, here.
