Since releasing her first book in 1979, she has published several award-winning English poetry collections and translated the poetry of acclaimed Quebec writer Nicole Brossard from French (with Robert Majzels), Chus Pato from Galician, Fernando Pessoa from Portuguese, and Andres Ajens from Spanish. Moure has published poetry and translations in over 150 journals and anthologies in several countries, and her poems have been translated into eight languages.
