Imagination-Based Poetry Workshop
Stimulate your writing through exercises based on re-discovering and using your imaginative skills. Exercise and enhance your brain's imaginative 'muscle memory.' Learn to use wordplay to activate the inherent energy in language and come up with the initial ideas you are looking for to write poems. Imagination-based poetry moves away from the traditional or confessionalist approach to writing and gives the writer permission to create space for the imagination to explore, invent and roam. Unlike traditional workshops which focus on editing and fine tuning of work, this workshop targets the generative and brainstorming aspects of the writing process.

George Wallace is writer in residence at the Walt Whitman Birthplace, writing professor at Pace University in Manhattan, and author of 33 chapbooks of poetry in the US, England, Italy, India, Albania and Greece. Editor of Poetrybay.com and co-editor of Great Weather for Media, he travels internationally to perform his poetry and lead poetry writing workshops. In 2003 he was named first poet laureate for Suffolk County, LI NY. In 2015-16 he served as the first poet laureate of the national Beat Poetry Festival in Middletown Ct. In 2017 he was named Grand Prize Winner at the Ditet e Naimit International Poetry Festival in Tetova, Macedonia. In 2018 he was named Orpheus Prize winner at the first international poetry festival at Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and was recipient of the Alexander The Great Gold Medal Prize, the first American to receive this Greek award.

A five-week poetry writing workshop. February 17, 24, March 3, 10, 17. Noon-2 pm.
