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.

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.
