I had heard a rumor that there was to be a Bardic Collegium to be scheduled in the future.
Is that still in the works, or what? If so, when, where, do you need teachers for classes still, etc? Let me know what's up, as I am VERY interested in the idea!

To Elanor (and all other bards!):

Below is a reprint of the event announcement sent out by Lord Alden Drake.  Yes, the first (in a long time) Bardic Collegium is being held at Three Kings, November 13th.  Classes will abound, and Master Pendaran will host a bardic circle that evening.  If you have suggestions for classes or would like to volunteer, please contact me privately.  I'm in the process of organizing the class schedule.  I hope to see (and hear!) you all there!

In humble service,


Good people of Ansteorra,

We, Dona Antonia Bianca Santiago da Lagos, Premier Bard of Ansteorra, 
Master Pendaren Glamorgan, and Lord Alden Drake, are pleased to announce 
an event unlike any other to take place in the fairest kingdom in the 
Knowne World…


The Shire of Rosenfeld has graciously agreed to host to the collegium 
in conjunction with Battle of Three Kings, on the weekend of November 
12-14.   We invite bards of all ranks, skills, and styles, lovers of 
bardic performance, and all those in search of craft knowledge to come and 
partake of a day of classes and an evening of entertainment.

Bardic classes will be taught during the day.  Dona Antonia is in 
charge of the class schedule and class-related information.  If you are 
willing/available to teach, or provide class materials (or are willing to 
share a pavilion for use as a class room), please contact her at 
dsrummel at yahoo.com.  Once we have an idea of the number and types of 
classes being offered, we will post with a schedule.  We will also be 
contacting possible teachers directly, but we would love to hear from you 
first!  If you aren’t a teacher, but have a class idea in mind, send 
that in too and we will try and find a teacher for it.

The bardic circle, which will be held in the evening, is being 
coordinated by Master Pendaran.  Please get in touch with him if you would like to volunteer to help with set-up/decorating the circle area, or if you 
have any bardic circle related questions.  The format and fashion of 
the circle will be announced at a later date.  Master Pendaran can be 
reached at twinoak at cox-internet.com.

Lord Alden has begun work on The Rising Star (an Ansteorran Bard Book), 
which will be available at the event, and in the future in a 
downloadable format.  The book is to be a collection of pieces written by 
Ansteorrans, and will contain songs, stories, and poetry.  Space is limited to 
three pieces per person, and space is limited, so send in your piece 
early.  Not all pieces are guaranteed to be included, but a best effort 
will be made.  Songs are encouraged to be sent with musical notation, 
which will be included in the book wherever possible.  Along with your 
piece, please include permission to publish the piece. You can contact 
Lord Alden at alden_drake at sbcglobal.net.

If you have any other questions regarding the Ansteorran Bardic 
Collegium, please contact one of us and we will get back to you as soon as 
possible.  Additional information regarding this event will be 

In service,

Dona Antonia, Master Pendaran, and Lord Alden
