Feedback form is now closed.
Poets throughout history have used the moon as a metaphor to describe passionate loves, or the wavering emotions/moods that we experience, or the contemplative times when we muse over death and loss, or the ways we run from love or seek out pain.  This reading features five writers who will explore life's peaks and craters, the ways that the moonshine reaches all of us, the glint and glare of love and death, the waning gleam of the moon as we move through our lives.
