On Saturday the 12th of April UCLAN Pagan Society hosted a full day event called Writing Between the Worlds led by writer, storyteller and teacher, Kevan Manwaring. The first part involved combining Bardic and Shamanic practices with creative writing; encountering a guide, visiting the Otherworld, receiving a gift and returning, then journeying to meet the British god Nodens. After each journey we recorded our experiences.
In the second part all the workshop participants performed their work supported by local poets, storytellers and singers. During his headline performances Kevan recited poems based on Tam Lin and Taliesin. He told a story featuring a man with a portable gateway to the Otherworld set outside the Black Horse in Preston, and a magical tale about The White Horse of Uffington, which was the highlight of the night.
