Tom Moran

Tom Moran began writing poetry after college. His early influences included Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Dylan Thomas. These poets, among others, reached deep into his soul because they had something to say about life and about being a human being. His poetry reflects his spirituality and what itís like to be alive and in tune with the times. Moranís other formative influences include his proverbial aunts and uncles: Robert Lowell, Anne Sexton, and Elizabeth Bishop. Their confessional styles hit a chord with the budding poet that remains within his life today. I Moranís own words, Writing is therapy and poems are the mile markers for the road youíre on.
