From earliest times the moon has imspired artists, poets and musicians to celebrate her mysterious beauty. We shall discuss medieval cosmology from Ptolemy to Copernicus and Galileo culminating with the moon landing by Apollo 11. We shall share lunar myths from Greece, Rome and Egypt to stimulate our writing together with music and a variety of poems celebrating the many moods and influences of the moon on our world through the tides she creates. Shared work is a source of imagination and energy we all enjoy. All comers welcome whether new to writing or experienced poets!
