  1. The fact is most people interested in Wicca do not have access to quality teachers. Do NOT settle for a mediocre (or worse) teacher just because you think you need one. Most of us learn by books, experience and more casual relationships with fellow Wiccans.
    You might be able to find a local teacher, or at least people to network with, in the pagan database at http://www.witchvox.com. But, seriously, take your search for a teacher seriously, and don’t settle for someone out of desperation. Just because someone offers to teach doesn’t mean they have a clue about what they are teaching.

  2. Find a local New Age store that offers Wicca 101 classes. This is a good way to meet other people interested, and gain a base understanding of Wicca.

  3. go to http://www.witchvox.com and look for locals in your area. Some covens offer classes. Most do require you to join so be careful and be sure that you are drawn to their particular path and way of doing things. Also try meetup.com and see about some social groups. You may find someone who will take you under their wing and allow you to be solitary.

  4. For the most part, if you are under 18 years of age, another Wiccan won’t teach you without parental consent, and sometimes not even then.
    However if you are over that, http://witchvox.com/ is a good place to start searching. Not only is it super easy to find other Wiccans nearby or in your area, there are also really informative and helpful articles on it.
    Just as Nightwind said, don’t settle for a mediocre or crappy teacher just because you feel that you need a teacher. Most Wiccans learn from casual relations with others and from various books and the like.
    There are many, many more books than this, but here are few I would recommend to start out with:
    – “Wicca for Beginners” by Thea Sabin
    – “Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner” by Scott Cunningham
    – “Living Wicca” (the sequel to the above) also by Scott Cunningham
    Try to avoid Silver Ravenwolf as much as possible for now. Her stuff tends to be “fluffy” and a bit unreliable.
    Here are some good websites as well:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicca
    http://wicca.timerift.net/
    http://witchvox.com/
    http://beliefnet.com/
    There is also some nice ladies known as TipToeChick and CharmingPixieFlora on YouTube who posts various videos on different Wiccan and pagan topics if you’d like to check them out:

    This is CharmingPixieFlora’s video on “Recommended Reading”. The books she talks about are listed in sections in the video description, the beginner books would be good to get for somebody just starting out, and most of them are available at Borders, or if not at your local Borders bookstore, at their website.

    Also, TipToeChick made a video titled “Is Wicca Right For You?” which you should definitely watch if you’re interested. I do realize that she mentions Silver Ravenwolf in her video, but I personally would wait until you have a basic grounding of reliable knowledge before reading anything by her.

  5. Merry Meet Alisha,
    Your primary resource in Wicca is Witchvox. There you will find many articles from great sources throughout the greater Pagan community. As at Witchvox you can find local groups to fellowship with and possibly grow through. Another great resource is your local public library. Many public libraries have found that the community is growing as well as becoming a very popular subject of study; so many big city libraries are now carrying several titles on the Craft in their libraries across their cities.
    I hope my short blurp has aided you in your quest.
    Blessed Be
    Nyjh

  6. There are no teachers.
    You have to learn yourself
    Learn from covens
    Or check your local metaphysical store.
