by Caroline Moore, GA
Caroline Moore was born and raised in New Orleans and currently resides in the Audubon neighborhood. She is a first-year MFA student studying fiction in UNO’s Creative Writing Workshop. Caroline completed her B.A. in English at Louisiana State University in May 2020 and worked as an assistant teacher for one year while applying to graduate school. Her fondest memory of undergrad was spending a semester in London and traveling solo throughout Europe, something she hopes to do again after completing her master’s.
In her free time, Caroline enjoys riding her bike, spending time with family and friends, making strangely specific Spotify playlists, or binging any of the Real Housewives franchises. She loves to travel and hopes to visit California this summer with her partner, Dave, and road trip along Big Sur. Caroline’s ideal night out in New Orleans consists of drinks at Santos Bar on Decatur followed by dim sum at Dian Xin. She’s often described as “hilarious” and “incredible” by those close to her, and Caroline dreams of writing comedy for television post-grad. She’s a big film nerd and minored in Screen Arts during her time at LSU. It’s hard for her to choose an all-time favorite film, but some honorable mentions would be Kill Bill, Cleo From 5 to 7, Mean Girls and anything by Studio Ghibli or Wes Anderson.
She grew up reading People magazines and is an avid consumer of pop culture, specifically anything related to the Kardashians or the Royal Family. Her celebrity crush is John Mayer and she’s seen him in concert thrice; hopefully Caroline will make it a fourth time when she sees him play with Dead & Company sometime soon. Three words to describe her would be: confident, witty, and sincere. Aside from reading tabloids, she also reads real books. Some of her favorite writers are Anthony Bourdain, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Charles Bukowski. Her favorite books are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure seriesby Hirohiko Araki, and Pulp by Charles Bukowski.
