Hi there. I’m K. S Moore, a Welsh poet, based in Ireland, widely published in literary journals throughout Ireland and the UK. I am also a mum of two beautiful girls. Being a mum inspires and informs my writing, opening my eyes to the small wonders in each day. I believe in poetry’s ability to express our deepest emotions. It should be practised and read by everyone!
