Signposts at Samhain

Nov 15th, 2018 | By

I waited beneath the Yew, its bedraggled branches still somehow providing shelter from the sudden rush of rain. The car park before me and the park behind seemed empty and not for the first time I wondered whether I was doing the right thing; whether these outdoor GATHERings were sustainable in the face of determined

The Life Eclectic

Keli Tomlin The Life Eclectic

It took me almost two decades to become comfortable with being, what many might call, an Eclectic pagan or, as I prefer to call myself, ‘green-spirited’. During my formative years in the early 2000’s I was part of the London Pagan scene and it was alive with a vast array of people and practises. I

Inside Paganism 101

Apr 14th, 2018 | By

Paganism 101 is an introduction to Paganism written by 101 Pagans! A rather neat take on the 101 book, we though. When you’re picking up an anthology, it’s good to know who wrote what, so, here’s the rundown… A number of authors who came to us through this community project have since gone on to

Moon Books has a number of community anthologies out there in the world already. These books give opportunities to Pagans who are not established authors.

Dancing with the Goddess – Demelda Penkitty ‘There are no mistakes in Circle Dancing – only variations’ In July last year (2017) I made my first tentative steps down a path that was to change my life. I discovered circle dancing! Now anyone who knows me would most probably laugh at the idea of me

Community books

Jan 20th, 2016 | By

By Nimue Brown This time last year I was going slightly mad trying to put together two community books – Pagan Planet here at Moon Books, and Stroud Short Stories anthology – a collection of all the short stories picked for a local event over a number of years. With any book the aim is

New for January – Pagan Planet

Jan 6th, 2016 | By

What does it mean to live as a Pagan in this uncertain world of climate change, economic hardship and worldwide social injustice? What does it mean to hold nature as sacred when ravaging the land is commonplace? How do we live our Paganism in our families and homes, our communities and countries? Pagans are stepping

Pagan Community

May 20th, 2015 | By

The balance between working and volunteering in the Pagan community is often unclear. So much that happens is not run for profit, and much that has a monetary aspect tends not to be making anyone a lot of money.  How we treat each other can so easily be informed by whether we think the other

By Nimue Brown No book happens in isolation. All authors are shaped by their backgrounds, communities, friends, peers, by who they read and how they were taught. I think this is especially true in modern Paganism, where our relationships with peers and teachers can really define us. Support from established authors gives new writers a
