Mystic South Conference – July 21-23
Mystic South is a newly-formed Southern-based conference – one that was not only easier to attend for folks in the American South, but also had a Southern flair and spoke of the mystic spirit of our own part of the country. This isn’t strictly a Heathen conference, though there will be plenty of Heathen representation (including Alvilldr who will be presenting a paper on ancestor worship among Heathen women).
