Jim Moreno's October workshop at San Diego Writers, Ink resonates with the African-American painter/poet's take on reading and writing in community. A community, as Jihmye might say, has a desire for justice and a desire for the recognition of all humanity. Moreno amplifies: “From our time in the Langston Hughes Poetry Circle, our time on the board of the African American Writers & Artists, our time teaching and performing together, he would agree that writing in community is an entire different experience than writing in solitude. The energy in the room is different, more conducive to inspiration, motivation, imagination, & contagion, to write something you may have never written before. We writers are very hard on ourselves. The other poets in the room giving feedback about what they liked in your poem creates fertile ground for creativity. That's why my workshops are not critique classes, they are villages of support for beginning or seasoned poets.”
