Hubert Moore is a British poet with six published poetry collections, including Beautifully Kept Things (Smith/Doorstop, 2007). The most recent is The Hearing Room (Shoestring, 2006).
After retiring from forty years of teaching, Hubert Moore spent nine years as a writing mentor at The Medical Foundation, now called Freedom from Torture.
His most recent collections are Whistling Back (2012) and his eighth, The Bright Gaze of the Disoriented (2014), both published by Shoestring. To date Hubert had had nine full collections published, the ninth being The tree line (2017), the last five of them from Shoestring Press. As well as reading at the Royal Festival Hall and the Ledbury and Aldeburgh Festivals, he has performed at venues such as the Eden Project, New Scotland Yard and Whitstable Beach. His poem ‘Hosing Down’ was Highly Commended in this year’s Forward prize.
D.A.Prince wrote in London Grip: ‘He wears his considerable poetic skills lightly, keeping them subservient to the humanity that is central to his poetry even in the face of inhuman torture; there is a strong sense here of a poet drawing the whole world into his poems.’
Huberts tenth collection, The feeding-station is expected late in 2019.
