About Me

My name is Wesley Levelle Dingler. I was born in Central Alabama February 27, 1985. I'm a Piscean and love it.

I began writing poetry and child stories at age nine. I began home schooling after the Sixth Grade, having a lot of trouble in the public education system. I was a really weird kid, and they don't seem to care for bugs in the system.

Between 1995 and 2017, I composed over 900 Poems (between me and my pseudonym) and numerous fiction short-stories of varying styles, themes and messages. When I was in my 20s I developed my own style of poetry that I call Rhythmic Word Art, which I continue to compose today. I have always considered my own work in poetry to be abstract more than realistic; but I dabbed in realistic/confessional poetry here and there, as well.

If you are one of those narcissistic writers who don't befriend people unless they praise your work all over the place, then I have no use for you, and you will have no use for me. I'm a writer, not a critic. I spend more time writing than reviewing and I won't apologize for that. Maybe you should, as well. If I added you to my friends list, that means you wrote at least one thing that I loved.

I still write poetry under my pseudonym, Louis McKraker from time to time. You can read his work here.

All written work and photo work here is copyrighted separately. Written work belongs to me, photo work belongs to its respective owner.

Hey! Just wanted to let you know that I read your poetry often and really enjoy it. I just take a long time to get to reviews. But I do plan to review them!

Hey, I think it's going well, but I've started taking a teaching English course online so I've fallen behind in some of my reading and practicing.
Glad your back and hope you had a refreshing break!

Hi Wesley, I read some of your poems and I really enjoyed them. I myself love the celestial metaphors and imagery and your work sparkles with them - I guess that's why I love Romeo and Juliet. Unfortunately I'm not learned enough in poetry to offer any more in depth or constructive feedback. I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed them and wondered if you have read a collection by Nikita Gill called 'Wild Embers'? If not, I've a feeling you'd like it.
