Seligmann Estate

Right after Will Nixon‘s “Write Poems with Nature” workshop on April 6, George Searles will be taking the stage as the featured poet at the Poetry on the Loose open mic series.

Poetry on the Loose presents George J. Searles reading his work at 3:30 p.m. on April 6 in the Seligmann Studio, 23 White Oak Drive, Sugar Loaf (across from the SLPAC).  An open reading will follow the Searles’ presentation.

Searles has published many poems in small quarterlies, along with three volumes of literary criticism from university presses and five editions of a widely-used writing textbook. He is a professor of English and Latin at Mohawk Valley Community College, and has also taught graduate courses in workplace communications for The New School and creative writing on Pratt Institute’s upstate campus in Utica. In 2002 the Carnegie Foundation named him New York State’s “Professor of the Year.”

The next Poetry on the Loose reading on May 4 will feature Christi Shannon Kline.

Poetry on the Loose takes place on the first Saturday of each month, hosted by William Seaton at the Seligmann Center for the Arts. For more information call (845) 294-8085.
