Has published 50 books—written, co-written, translated, co-translated—of poetry and non-fiction.
Lives in Montreal, works everywhere. Allergic person, friend, auntie and granty, lesboqueer, cyclist commuter, small footprint on earth, cook.
The latest: a translation from the Galician of Chus Pato, The Face of the Quartzes (Veliz Books, 2021) and a chapbook, Retooling for a Figurative Life (Vallum, 2021). More at erinmoure.mystrikingly.com.
