The Witches' Voice
The Witches' Voice is a widely used resource for locating Pagans of all sorts around the world, as well as being a good resource for finding articles and news items of interest. It is not an academic site, but is rather one of the most popular sites for Pagan religionists. Thus it is a great resource for those of us researching Paganism.

With this site we seek to promote awareness and facilitate critical thinking among scholars, media, and the public about humans and their diverse environments. We welcome the participation of scholars from all disciplines and religious practitioners from all religious traditions.
