Here's George's bio from the Wyoming Arts Council web site:

Between time spent on his family’s olive farm on Crete, teaching language arts at Star Lane Center, an interdisciplinary problem-based high school in Casper, and his duties as Young Authors District Coordinator for the Natrona County School District, George Vlastos writes poetry. He recently was named the winner of the Neltje Blanchan Memorial Writing Award from the Wyoming Arts Council. He has published several collections, including Strophe (1997), Dreams, Grotesques & Hours (2003) and 9 Cross Sections (2005). Previously in WordBand, a former WAC roster artist literary group that performed choral poetry, George approaches the “mythic procession of community and culture” in his workshop presentations, and “the processes necessary to move from thought to written expression.”
