My name is Lorna Smithers and I'm a poet, author, awenydd, Brythonic polytheist, and devotee of Gwyn ap Nudd. I am currently exploring how the ancient British myths relate to our environmental and political crises, recovering the lost links between the Old North and Wales, and journeying Annwn (the Brythonic Otherworld) with the aim of re-weaving the ways between the worlds and dreaming new stories.

Many of my articles, poems, and stories have been posted on my blog, Signposts in the Mist. I have published four books: Enchanting the Shadowlands, The Broken Cauldron, and Gatherer of Souls. My fourth book, Porth Annwn, will document my explorations of the Otherworld.

By becoming my patron you will be supporting my research and creative writing and providing me with an income from living by my vocation as an awenydd. I long to be part of a world where creators get paid fairly for their work and together we can make that happen.
