Biography of Pilar (Pia) Mogollon

Pilar (Pia) Mogollon poet

I've had very little formal training, I just like to write what i know, what I see, and occasionally meander around trying to find new things to write about. One of my favorite writing teachers, Joy Oshun [Pima College, Tucson, AZ] made a great impact on me by encouraging me to explore outside of my own realm of knowledge and experience to find inspiration. As a writer, I aspire to an abandonment of my preconceived schools of thought; I strive to step outside of the boxes that through conditioning and defense mechanism we humans often enclose ourselves in.

I am also a photographer and artist, so I am often inspired by imagery and conversely, my art is often inspired by the written word.

Walkin' this world, a single mother for the past eleven years has been an arduous effort for me as it is for many. My son currently lives with my very wonderful sister as I work toward some sense of stability.

My goal is to overcome the need for the 40-hour work week; reunite and live happily and peacefully with my son, as we make our way in this society and better our lives through creative endeavors.

Through all of my experiences in life I have come to believe in the village mentality and strive to build community and share and receive info and resources wherever I go.
