Pagan Dawn is a quarterly magazine covering polytheism, esoteric arts, history and the environment. It caters to all those who are interested in nature-based spirituality, philosophy and cultural history and features articles, reviews and research. Its coverage ranges from cutting edge academic thought to people profiles of activists and volunteers.

Originally a newsletter entitled “The Wiccan”, Pagan Dawn has published continually since 1968, making it the longest running esoteric periodical in the world. It was retitled in 1994 to reflect its expanded coverage of all Pagan paths, including Druidry, Shamanism, Heathenry and many more worldwide faiths.

Pagan Dawn is the official magazine of the Pagan Federation and reflects its aims in promoting a positive profile for Paganism and supporting all Pagans to ensure they have the same rights as the followers of other beliefs and religions.

Exclusive to the Pagan Dawn online edition is “We Emerge”, a history of the Pagan Federation, originally produced as a limited edition in the 1990s and features a reproduction of the very first “The Wiccan” newsletter and excerpts from the subsequent 15 years. More exclusive content will be added to each new issue of Pagan Dawn, in addition to “Green Pages”, the directory of national and international Pagan groups and meet-ups.
