1:00 PM Workshop: The Apache in His Pen Jim Moreno's September workshop takes an in-depth look at the poetry of writer Jimmy Santiago Baca, born of Chicano and Apache parents, abandoned by them and placed in an orphanage by his grandmother. At 13, Baca ran away from the orphanage and then at 19 ended up in prison. How can someone with so much against him evolve into such an artist with the pen? Poetry.

If you have not attended Jim Moreno's writing workshops you will leave with two original poems crafted from resources from a syllabus that will provide many satisfying hours of reading, music and further writing resources for the writer dedicated to walking the infinite path of richness and depth the art provides.

In addition, typical of a Moreno workshop, Jim has found poetry from writers of other cultures and genres that resonate with Baca's verse. Other poets who write clearly about mountains, the skies, stony earth, events and dreams with existential eyes, finding meaning in meaninglessness, will grace the prompts.

Jimmy Santiago Baca's indigenous roots bring inclusion, tolerance, love and community to his prolific pen. Baca once wrote, "Literacy is freedom and everyone has something significant to say."

If you are looking for a workshop to help you find your audience, this workshop is not for you. If you are looking for a critique workshop, this class is not for you. If you are looking for a safe writing environment, a place to explore your own heart, to find your original voice, this is the workshop for you. You do have something significant to say.

For beginning or seasoned poets.
