Indigo Moor

Poet Laureate of Sacramento, Indigo Moor is also a scriptwriter and author. His first book, Tap-Root, was published as part of Main Street Rag’s Editor’s Select Poetry Series. His second book of poetry, Through the Stonecutter’s Window, won Northwestern University Press’s Cave Canem prize. As with Tap-Root, Indigo’s 2017 release, In the Room of Thirsts & Hungers, is an Editor’s Select choice from Main Street Rag.

Three of his short plays, Harvest, Shuffling, and The Red and Yellow Quartet debuted at the 60 Million Plus Theatre’s Spring Playwright’s festival. His full-length stageplay, Live! at the Excelsior, was a finalist for the Images Theatre Playwright Award and has been optioned for a full-length film.

Indigo teaches at the Stonecoast MFA Program, where he graduated in 2012 with an MFA in poetry, fiction, and scriptwriting. Indigo is the Poetry Editor for the Bookends Review Literary Journal. He is on the advisory board for the Sacramento Poetry Center, a Cave Canem fellow, the resident artist at 916 ink, and a graduate member of the Artist's Residency Institute for Teaching Artists.

Indigo spends his days cleverly disguised as a mild-mannered Physical Design Engineer for computer companies.
