New Thread: Folkdays

The third and final of my new threads is something I am calling ‘Folkdays’. A portmanteau of the words ‘Folklore Fridays’, these posts will explore a little element of folk culture: folktales, lore, or anything I find that fits in with my current research.

As well as researching folklore for my own poetry, I am also currently writing an MA thesis on the subject of Shakespeare and the folktale. ‘Folkdays’ posts will be anything I feel would be interesting to share, from either side of my research. If you’re interested in this topic, all ‘Folkdays’ posts (and other bits and pieces not worthy of a full post) will be archived on my ‘blog’ page.

As the name suggests, these posts will appear on Fridays, though not every week!
