Rocky Wilson


Rocky Wilson is a poet, performance artist and Walt Whitman interpreter who lives near the Delaware River in Camden, New Jersey, where he has been writing and performing for over 30 years. Rocky is a long time favorite at the Walt Whitman Cultural Arts Center in Camden, both for his popular children's shows and for his powerful dramatic plays. A Master's Degree in dance from Temple University and studies in creative writing at Rutgers, Camden, have enabled Rocky to create a unique blend of words and movement that bring his stories and poetry to life. Called the "Puppet Laureate of Camden," Rocky can often be seen biking across the Ben Franklin Bridge with a little monkey puppet on his hand.
