Last full moon of winter will find us later this week. Anyone up for another communal poetry writing and sharing party on this upcoming full moon? If you are, just use the tag “fullmoonsocial” on your WordPress blog post or #fullmoonsocial if you’re tweeting your poem.
I’ve got the moon hitting full at 1:05 pm EST. At that point, until it sets wherever you happen to be, consider the party to be started. I’ll be following the tags and posting links to your poems as I see them. As with our inaugural full moon social, if you’re interested in having your poem (or photo or artwork, whatever you post!) included in a free epub anthology that I’ll put together shortly after the party, let me know in an email to email@example.com. If you’re contributing, all rights are retained by you. The moon doesn’t take your rights.
I’m in. Uh oh. Panic setting in. Must write poem…
No panic. Just the full moon. Illuminating yer mind, &c. See you (virtually) Thursday…

Join in if you so desire to Jeff Schwaner’s second Full Moon Social.
I slipped into a bit of a creative funk (I blame it on this blasted winter) and haven’t logged onto wordpress in a month . So happy to jump on today and find your post! Looking forward to the second Full Moon Social and to the evening’s simultaneous flow of creativity! In desperate need of a jolt of moonbeam inspiration.
a dumb question…does it have to be about the moon?
I don’t think that’s dumb. I don’t think that’s necessary, actually. The traditional idea is that no matter where you were in the world, you and the person you were thinking about could be viewing the moon at the same time and thinking about each other. Add to that the tradition of writing poems about that experience and you see how the moon becomes a strong symbol of missing loved ones, longing, etc. I don’t think, though, that your poem needs to include the moon! Just post what you happen to do that night if you want!
thank-you for explaining jeff. that’s a wonderful explanation. i was going to look for something already written . i don’t know how to just think…lol…& i was fairly certain i had nothing about the moon,escept to add to your “the moon doesn’t take your rights” only enhances…lol
Feel free to use that line as a starting point. That would be great!
lol oh thank-you jeff
😀 found it through zdunno
Welcome! I get a lot out of following Len’s blog!
What fun discussions there must sometimes be on his campuses, as there is meaning only if meaning is perceived.

Hey, Guys! I hope you’ll join me tomorrow night for the second edition of the Full Moon Social! It’ll be a blast!
Not sure when the moon will be on highest “fullness” over the prairies, but I think 1am is 11pm here. It was awesome at 6:30 am this morning.

Interesting challenge. I haven’t written any poetry in quite a while.
Tonight is the night, then.
