According to Wikipedia, the term “bard” refers to a historical class of poets, satirists, and musicians who told stories to the aristocracy.
In some ways, “fool” is a similar term. Shakespeare’s fools, for example, usually hang out next to the king and act like goofs—hiding the fact that they absolutely call it like it is. Fools are also known for poetry, music, and general cavorting.
So what’s a “Bardic Fool,” then?
The Bardic Fools of the world are the writers, artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs who bring us together. We create fandoms to talk about their work—and it inspires our work—and the cycle of creativity continues.
Whether I’m writing novels, making YouTube videos, or editing other writers’ work, I’m always looking for opportunities to encourage people to share a little more of their unique creativity the world.
That’s what Bardic Fool is about.
