Helen Moore

Helen Moore is an award-winning British ecopoet and socially engaged artist currently based in Sydney. She has published three poetry collections, Hedge Fund and Other Living Margins(Shearsman Books, 2012), ECOZOA (Permanent Publications, 2015), acclaimed by John Kinsella as ‘a milestone in the journey of ecopoetics’, and in 2019, The Mother Country (Awen Publications), exploring British colonial history and themes of personal, social and ecological dispossession. A collaborative bilingual Italian-English work, INTATTO.INTACT: Ecopoesia.Ecopoetry, featuring Helen’s work was published by La Vita Felice in 2017, and in 2018 Helen gave the annual INSPIRE lecture at the Hay Book Festival, based on her award-winning essay ‘Is love the answer?’ Helen regularly reads her work at literary and environmental events, facilitates ecopoetry workshops in schools and universities, and leads nature-based writing retreats.
