Witch Trials

Construct a narrative around a witch on trial, where the ethics and perspectives of witchcraft are explored.

Using the well-known backdrop of the Salem witch trials as inspiration, you could delve into the social, religious, and political consequences of being different in a conformist society. You can explore themes like prejudice, mob mentality, power dynamics, scapegoating, and the courage to stand for one’s truth. Does your witch find vindication or escape, or do they fall victim to ignorance and fear?
