Matthew Moore is the translator of Tomaž Šalamun's Opera Buffa, forthcoming from Black Ocean in 2021.
His poems appear widely in literary magazines and journals, including Annulet: A Journal of Poetics, The Carolina Quarterly, Guesthouse, Lana Turner, and Second Stutter. From 2012 to 2020, he was a co-editor of the experimental online poetry journal, Flag + Void. He holds degrees from Kenyon College and the Michener Center for Writers. He was born in Illinois.
In April 2021, taking part in the gift economy of support for poetry and independent publishing, on behalf of the fine publications and the future endeavors of Tupelo Press, I will be composing thirty new poems for "Lord Chandos," a manuscript-in-progress that acts as a history of the present, under the sign of the poets Ingeborg Bachmann and Paul Celan.
Please join me in this adventure and provide support for my host, Tupelo Press, as I produce thirty avant-garde lyric poems devoted to history in thirty days with whatever I can muster of my poetic trade.
Your support gives me vital inspiration as I write for thirty days this month. Tupelo Press provides the canvas, I bring my words, accompanied by other fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 90 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.
Every dollar gives me confidence to write more, and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!
