Award-winning NY poet George Wallace will stimulate your writing through exercises based on rediscovering and using your imaginative skills through generative wordplay. Brainstorm your own prompts and trigger ideas for new poems, in a friendly interactive group setting. Jumpstart your muse through exercises that enhance the writer’s ability to create space for the imagination to explore, invent, discover and roam.
