Created by writer and editor Dave Bonta, Moving Poems describes itself as "an on-going anthology of the best poetry videos from around the web, appearing at a rate of one every weekday most weeks." The site primarily focuses on showcasing videopoetry, which juxtaposes poetic texts with audio and visual elements. Readers may wish to begin by browsing an alphabetical directory of poets and videopoetry filmmakers, as featured on Moving Poems, under the Explore tab. Users can browse by poet name, nationalities of poets, filmmaker name, and other tags. Those interested in learning more about videopoetry can visit the Magazine section to read Interviews with people working in the industry, and find Reviews of film festivals. Another feature of the Magazine section is Top Ten Lists, which the site describes as "galleries of noteworthy poetry films and videopoems assembled by filmmakers, poets, film festival organizers, scholars, critics and other knowledgeable fans of the genre." Moving Poems also catalogues poetry film festivals, which readers can find listed on the main site under Links.
