December Feature Joshua Moore

joshuamooreJoshua Moore is a 2014 graduate of Eureka College where he studied English Creative Writing and Biology Pre-Medicine, and was a recipient of the Ronald W. Reagan Fellowship. After a brief stint as an oncological researcher at Tuskegee University, Joshua decided to place his med-school aspirations on hold in order to first purse his love of poetry and attain an MFA. A member of the Porch Writers Collective, Joshua is the facilitator of The Porch’s poetry book club as well as director of the poetry on demand project. He currently spends his days caught in the mill of work, writing, and grad-school application prep, daydreaming of his future self; a world traveling poet/professional who also happens to be Black Batman.

  1. Greetings! My wife and I were visiting from out of town and Chuck Beard from East Side Story tipped us off about the reading. We really enjoyed hearing Joshua and the many open mic readers. So much talent! Unfortunately, we had to leave just after 8 so I didn’t get to talk with Christine, Joshua, or any of the Porch Poets. Hopefully we can coordinate a return trip with a second Saturday. Cheers and keep up the good work!

    • Hello James, thanks for your message. I’m delighted you came out and enjoyed the show. Thankful to Chuck, also, for pointing you our way. Fully agree that the feature poet Joshua gave a momentous reading, and there’s an abundance of literary talent at Nashville open mics. There’s great work coming out of Illinois, too. I’ll be on the lookout for more from you.

      Peace, love, and poetry,
