George Vlastos has been the featured artist at the WyoPoets Annual Conference, the recipient of the Neltje Blanchan Fellowship – awarded to a writer whose work, in any genre, has been influenced by nature – and selected by the Casper College Humanities Festival to present Pilgrim vs. Pilgrimage, part of a memoir written in prose and poetry about his travels among the monasteries of northern Greece.

George received a BA in English & Creative Writing from Stanford University and an MFA from the University of Wyoming in Poetry & Environment and Natural Resources. Currently he teaches Language Arts at Pinedale Middle School. George is also a part-time Cretan villager where his family raises olives and produces olive oil.
