Share Article

What began as a book evolved into a movement. Kym Gordon Moore delivers a conversation of education, diversity, and innovation about poetry in bite-size pieces.

With nontraditional approaches to disrupt the conventional thought processes about poetry, this book uses the platform of storytelling to change the narrative of poetry. It is not your typical chapbook but begins with chapters covering the author’s observations relevant to her poetry experience, interspersed with ninety-eight poems.

We Are Poetry: Lessons I Didn’t Learn in a Textbook is filled with many surprises you would not ordinarily find in a collection of poetry. Learn about the POEMS method of TheraPoetry and the constructional elements of expanding your poetry patois with ArchiPoetry. This book contains several components that serve as an academic complement and is an ideal addition to libraries, giving creative insight into the poetry, revolutionary movement. It functions as a dialogue engineer designed to build and employ the application of poetry in the fight against illiteracy, functional illiteracy, aliteracy, and disparity.

“This book serves as a disrupter in the conventional order of poetry by promoting diverse cultures and a platform for voices that were once silent. Sometimes poetry can seem cryptic and leaves one feeling bewildered and bored. Together, we can be the change agents of poetry in an educational landscape and on a social platform,” says Moore. “Poetry is alive and thriving. We haven't tapped into the breadth, scope, and depth of our poetry roots and vernacular. Our conversation through poetry reaches beyond our borders and connects to our world. Poetry can be a lifesaver, as I noted in this book.”

The subjects in We Are Poetry: Lessons I Didn’t Learn in a Textbook are simple to understand, creatively descriptive, emotionally engaging, and easy to connect to readers. While many critics theorize that poetry is on the verge of flat-lining, Moore believes poetry advocates are witnessing an incredible revival of the genre through a growing, diverse, and new generation of poetry enthusiasts.
