Marian D. Moore converted a childhood love of science into a career in computing programming. Her love of literature led to her writing both poetry and fiction. In 1998, she became a member of the NOMMO Literary Society, a writing workshop led by New Orleans writer and activist Kalamu ya Salaam. Her poetry has been published in the journals Drumvoices, The Louisiana Review and Bridges, the anthologies Mending for Memory: Sewing in Louisiana Essays, Stories, and Poems, Dominion: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora, and I Am New Orleans. Her book of poetry, Louisiana Midrash, was published by UNO Press/Runagate in January 2019.
