As the editor of a prestigious literary magazine called The Dial, Moore was a mover and a shaker in the verse world. Her job allowed her to connect with all kinds of famous poets, including Wallace Stevens, Ezra Pound, and William Carlos Williams. Talk about networking. (Source.)

Moore's first collection, Poems, was published behind her back by a friend. Um… thanks? (Source.)

Moore was a baseball nut. And she got to live the dream that all baseball nuts dream: she threw out the first pitch at a 1968 Yankee's game. Jealous. (Source.)
