What’s Up With The Newt?
Yes, there is a story behind our newt logo. When we first had the idea to put on a tarot symposium in the northwest we were looking around at similar events across the country. The one closest to us is BATS (Bay Area Tarot Symposium). Jay made a joke about how if they are bats then we would have to be newts. So our name became the Northwest Tarot Symposium ( or NWTS which we pronounce NeWTS).
And, as all northwestern folks know, there are a lot of newts in the area. Perfect little critters to be the mascot for the Northwest Tarot Symposium.
