The Pagan Muse

The call for papers for the next Canadian Pagan conference is now online. The conference will be held May 18-21, 2007 at the University of Winnipeg. Its theme is "The Pagan Muse: Inspiration, Creativity, and the Art of Pagan Practice." Both academic and "grassroots" scholars are invited.

Typing this brought back a memory from the 1970s, when I read in a tiny Denver literary magazine, Mano a Mano, an opinion that went something like this: "Just because [Poet So-and-so] is in the Craft, he thinks that he has a direct line to the Muse."

Heh. To paraphrase that eminent Deist Benjamin Franklin, the Muse helps those who help themselves.
