Full Moon Social Anthology 1 [#fullmoonsocial2014]

Seriously nearly-full moon not taking any nonsense--join the FullMoonSocial2014 on Wednesday.

The idea was simple–let’s all gaze at the moon together, wherever we are, and share our words and images. Let’s have a full moon social event that the Ancients would understand and appreciate.

On October 8, 2014 WordPress and Twitter sparkled with poems, prose fragments, and photos from an assortment of creative folk using the hashtag #fullmoonsocial2014. It was a fun night to moon-gaze — and to refresh our searches on that tag to see what new poem or photo had popped up.

As much as I could, and with the permission of the authors, I have gathered this work into a humble anthology, available in PDF format. While designed like a traditional book, and without the website-inspired underlining, the websites or Twitter handles of each contributors are live links which will take you directly to their sites to find out more about the author and her/his work. The Contents pages are likewise linked to the book as well.

Please feel free to download it here, as a keepsake and a thank-you from me for joining in, to write, contribute, and to read. Any typos or other issues are mine, and please do not hesitate in letting me know if some adjustment needs to be made.

Likewise, if you’re an author or artist or photographer who contributed to the Full Moon Social but you don’t see your work here, let me know and I’ll add it in.

And if anyone’s interested in doing it again…

        Actually, a special poetry project I’d planned a year ago ended up being trumped by the Race Around the World and all the series it birthed this year. I also planned to collaborate with artists as you did. Maybe we will work together in some way down the line. =)

    Thank you Jeff! Much gratitude to you for organizing the Full Moon Social and compiling all participants’ works into a lovely anthology. It was great fun! I do hope you do it again!

    Beautifully done, JS — and everyone! It was a fine tradition thousands of years ago, and will be an even finer one in this age where the moon can shine on and inspire we lunatics without borders… ^_^
