A Witches AU is a type of Magical Alternate Universe story, similar to the Elf AU, in which witches exist (in the case of witch-less canons) or in which a non-witch character is recast as a witch (regardless of whether witches appear in canon). Witch AUs can appear in any fandom.
Another way to indicate a canon non-witch character is recasted as a witch is to write it as: Witch!Character.

She didn’t need to be judged by Bellamy Blake. (New Girl/Roommates AU, Witch!Clarke)
