IPM-funded Poetry Partner Jim Moreno offers an online poetry workshop for Veterans.
How We Say It
Starting on Thursday, April 27
Jim Moreno, LMFT and a Veteran of Vietnam, will offer free online poetry classes to national, international, and deported Veterans. The poetry workshop, titled How We Say It will be held every other Thursday.
These free online classes will be held from 11:00am-1:00pm Pacific or 2:30-4:30pm Pacific. Mr. Moreno will facilitate this poem-writing class that will include poems by Veterans, film clips of poetry, poetry prompts, poetry composition, and reading of the original poems by the opportunity of writing in community, offering a different experience than writing alone.
Participating California Veterans will have the option of being published. At the end of the program Veterans will be asked to submit one poem for publishing in the next edition of the 2023-2024 San Diego Poetry Annual's Chapter for Veterans.
Any Veteran is eligible for this poem-making workshop.
Come for all six or come for a single session.
There is no fee to attend.
