Former student Mantie Lister elected Bard of Exeter
15th March 2015
Congratulations to Mantie Lister, a graduate of our BA in Creative Writing and English Literature, and our MA in Creative and Critical Writing. Mantie, who is head of English at St Peter’s School, has this week been elected the Bard of Exeter. According to ancient tradition, the town of Exeter is allowed to elect a Bard to serve for a term of one year and one day, and at 27 Mantie is believed to be the youngest ever Exeter Bard.
