Moving Poems has moved and shape-shifted

…though not as much as I might’ve hoped yet. My web-design skills are rudimentary, so please be patient, but recovery continues from a malicious hack and my disastrous, panicked response to it ten days ago. I took advantage of the crisis to do something I’d been intending to do for some time now: merge the news-and-views section, formerly known somewhat confusingly as Moving Poems Magazine, with the video library into one WordPress installation under a single banner. This should mean fewer problems with the email newsletter, since we no longer have to rely on a third-party feed blender (though we may still have to relocate to Substack at some point).

I think I’ve re-created all the posts I inadvertently destroyed, though I’m afraid a few pages may be unrecoverable.

If anyone is mad enough to want to join us as an author, get in touch. I have increasingly limited time to review videos for the site.

    Well done Dave, what an undertaking! Moving Poems is deeply appreciated by the film poetry community. It’s great that you managed to save it.

    Thanks, Janet! It has been an undertaking… in fact I felt rather like an undertaker there for a few days, until I pulled myself together.
