"Thanks to all who submitted nominations! The Witches' Web is happy to announce the first Witches' Web Award for Excellence!. Congratulations goes to none other than The Witches' Voice. In many ways, the WVOX embodies everything a Witch or Pagan web site could hope to be. Aside from the great set of links to other Witch and Pagan sites, it is most importantly a proactive educational network dedicated to correcting misinformation about Witches and Witchcraft. There are other fine groups fighting for Witches' rights, but none have truly inspired Witches' quite like Fritz, Wren and Peg of the Witches' Voice. If there was ever to be a beacon of light shining on this Earth for all Witches' freedom everywhere, it would emanate from somewhere in the vicinity of Boston, MA - the location of the Witches' Voice." - The Witches' Web

Witches' Voice awarded Gwydion's Golden Site of the Month (3/24/97): Texas Pagan Awareness's affinity for the Witches' Voice is no secret. Our Texas Coordinator serves on the Board of Advisors for the Witches' Voice, and the rest of TPA simply love Wren, Fritz, and Peg alot.

This web site is first among those sites that seek religious freedom and equality for Witches'. Fritz and Wren and Peg have spent countless hours working on their site, writing wonderful articles, scanning tons of media reports for news that we should all be aware of, and yet they always have time to write a supportive email to encourage others in their endeavors. The light and love and truth that emits from this site is palpable when you first visit.
They have created many offering for Pagans from all over the country to aid in networking and dialog. They have created a resource and educational section that is surpassed by no other site on the web. Their site is always on top of the latest new and stories, and they use their web space like a magickal tool to finally secure freedom and understanding for Witches everywhere.

For all that they have done, for all that they continue to do, and for all the heartache they have suffered to further the cause and the work, we give this month's "Golden Site" Award to Wren, Fritz, and Peg of the Witches' Voice. Their site is more than just a web site - much more." -Texas Pagan Awareness Online

Also available: articles by teenage pagans, Witchcraft FAQs, and more related resources than you can shake a broomstick at. (Pardon the stereotype.)

"Every week, I choose a site from my list of links to profile, based on content and appearance. This week's site is the The Witches' Voice site, based in Boston, Massachusetts. It truly doesn't get any better than this site, to be honest. Remember the former "Witches League for Public Awareness" (link below) site? It was beautiful, no doubt about that, and it was sorely missed when all the changes took place. Well, HAPPY DAY, because Fritz Jung and company is back on the 'Net, doing what they do best: The graphics are awesome, the content is staggering, and everything links its way back to wherever you need to go. Fritz should be an inspiration to webmasters everywhere, and this site makes a valuable contribution to the Pagan and Wiccan internet community. Stop by, and don't forget to leave Fritz some e-mail when you visit, telling him and the rest of the staff - Welcome Home." - Out of the Besom Closet.
