Hi! I’m Beth.
My work includes…
An alternative approach to tarot
I am a professional tarot reader, offering ethical, intelligent tarot readings by email. I also run a shop and an online course for tarot readers. My blog covers a huge range of tarot-related topics and features posts from guest writers.
An eight-week course in developing your personal approach to tarot
The course is made up of eight weekly chapters covering all kinds of tarot topics from creating your own spread and approaches to gender, to tarot storytelling and reading at events. Each chapter contains corresponding tarot spreads and weekly exercises designed to help would-be tarot readers develop their own unique relationship with their cards.
A social network and discussion platform for tarot lovers
The Alternative Tarot Network is an online community where members can discuss tarot cards, decks, resources and more. Members can also follow each other, send private messages, create galleries and promote their own work.
Free websites for feminist and queer projects
Everyone has a skill for the revolution. Mine is web design! I aim to signal-boost progressive feminist and queer individuals and organisations by providing free (or very affordable) website design and build.
For several years, I was director and webmaster at WomenCentre – a leading UK women’s charity providing a wide range of services including domestic violence support, services for refugee and asylum-seeking women, work with women offenders, counselling, learning opportunities and more. Having trained WomenCentre staff in managing their own website, I still provide voluntary web support when needed.
In 2013-16 lived on a small boat on the Rochdale Canal in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, then Manchester. Renovating, moving and selling Swallow was a big project for me, and I recorded the process on a blog.
