Fangornmoot 2021

Welcome to the meeting in Fangorn Forest! Dwarf, Elf, Human, Hobbit or Wizard, all creatures are invited to enjoy J. R. R. Tolkien’s works together!

❈ 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐅𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐨𝐫𝐧𝐦𝐨𝐨𝐭?

Fangornmoot is an online event hosted by Books from Fangorn. It aims to join people all over the world to enjoy and share their passion for J.R.R. Tolkien’s works.

It will take place, for the first time, in March 2021. It is hosted on Instagram, not affiliated with Instagram, and on this website.

This years’ theme is J.R.R. Tolkien’s works in everyday life. The idea is to share and converse on how Tolkien’s books are present in our lives, in everyday actions and in ordinary things we do. It can be in something we hold on from Tolkien’s books that brighten our lives, something we eat, something we own, somewhere we have been. Tolkien’s works can be present in different ways in our lives. Join Fangornmoot and enjoy the celebrations sharing your passions with other Tolkienists!

This March 2021, a weekly Tolkienist challenge is happening on Instagram, not affiliated with Instagram. The prompts were already published, as you can see here and in the picture above. You can share your posts under the hashtag #Fangornmoot any day of the week but just make sure to follow the weekly theme. The weekly challenges are:

  • Week I (Monday 1th – Sunday 7th): Share a picture or a photo of a place that reminds you of a setting from Tolkien’s legendarium.
  • Week II (Monday 8th – Sunday 14th): Share a picture of food or snack that reminds you of Tolkien’s works.
  • Week III (Monday 15th – Sunday 21th): Feature a picture of an object you have crafted that was inspired in Tolkien’s works, or share a picture of some merch you own.
  • Week IV (Monday 22th – Sunday 28th): Share your favourite edition of one of the works written by J. R. R. Tolkien. March 25th – Tolkien Reading Day: Share a quote by J.R.R. Tolkien that might inspire others.
  • Week V (Monday 29th – Wednesday 31th): Treasure Hunting: keep reading to discover what this means!

Books from Fangorn will be reposting your photos, with your credits and mention, in the stories if you agree, and they will remain on highlighted stories for a week as well. This is to share the love for the professor’s works with the world.

The last prompt from #Fangornmoot has arrived!

Thank you to everyone who has been participating so far, I am very grateful and I have loved your posts so much!

During the adventures, characters are given different objects on the road to help them face difficult tasks and dangerous perils. Some are very iconic. Do you think you can find them in your house and construct an original picture with them?

What you will need:

• 1 brooch
• 3 books
• 10 coins
• 1 snack
• 1 flask or bottle
• 1 piece of rope
• 2 maps
• 1 key
• 1 ring

The only rule is: do not use Tolkien inspired objects, save books. The idea is to make it as original as possible!

Here you will find an example:

Bonus: create a short story or poem in the caption that might be related to the objects you are showing.

Have fun! And happy adventure!
