Many Gods West 2016

Dear Friends,

This is the first of two major announcements I am making this week.

Now that the dust has settled from last month’s Many Gods West conference for polytheists, I have divined and listened and decided that YES, Many Gods West 2016 WILL HAPPEN. Both Rhyd Wildermuth and PSVL have decided for various reasons to sit this next one out. I shall be carrying the torch onward. I have assembled a crack team of co-conspirators – more people, more hands, which hopefully means more time for me to participate next year!

MGW will happen in Olympia again. The opening and closing rituals will be facilitated by Rynn Fox of the Coru Cathubodua. Aaaaaaand that’s all we know at this time. You can follow MGW’s Facebook page for updates as they occur. There will be a new website forthcoming as well. Stay tuned! And if you have any desire to prepare a proposal, please do! We’ll be putting the call out for those sometime this fall.

The enthusiasm, support, and love for this conference – from the gods and from humans – exceeded any expectations I had. I am hoping that MGW 2016 will be even better.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s second announcement!

    Maybe I won’t have to be out of country for this one! looking forward to it. Don’t know how much I could help you being on the other side of the state though.

    YAAY!

    I doubt I’ll be able to make it next year, either (I’ll hopefully be right in the middle of graduate work then), but this makes me feel better for more MGWs in the future that I WILL be able to attend!

    If there’s anything I can do over the Internets to help, let me know! If it’s in my abilities, I will!

    Congratulations! I’m glad to hear this will continue. If you’ll have a Wiccan among you, I may be able to make that one (you’re not that far south of me there in Olympia).

      Wiccans can be polytheists too! Jason Mankey deftly proved this at last year’s MGW. You would be more than welcome.
