PBS AUTUMN RECOMMENDATION: FIONA MOORE
Posted on July 26 2018
Full of elegant, gently piercing observations that build to a compelling portrait of love and loss and overcoming of grief. - Adam Newey, The Guardian
In her debut collection, Fiona Moore confronts personal loss and irretrievable change, as well as wider themes - recent European history and politics of power. To such concerns she brings creativity, humour and intelligence.
Fiona Moore has an MBA specialising in organisational culture and a degree in Classics. In 2004, she left her Foreign Office career to write, working part-time for Excellent Development, a sustainable development charity specialising in sand dams. She served as an assistant editor for The Rialto for several years and is currently on the editorial board for Magma. She reviews poetry (Saboteur Best Reviewer in 2014) and blogs at displacement-poetry.blogspot.co.uk. Her debut pamphlet, The Only Reason for Time, was a Guardian poetry book of the year and her second, Night Letter, was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award for Poetry Pamphlets.
