Allison Bishop is a poet whose current interest surrounds the Mabinogi and especially the Taliesin tales.

As a part of a M.A. thesis in creative writing, she wrote poetry inspired by the shamanic elements found in these stories. She joined Nancy in Wales to gather the words that the land speaks, the way the light colours its air, to walk its landscapes and breathe its ancestors with the hope that these experiences will inflect the poetry

For original poetry dedicated to sacred Welsh sites, the poet Taliesin and its lineage of mysticism, and also in honour of pilgrimage Nancy Sherwood style, go to Allison`s manuscript thesis at:
