I’ve been writing poetry since about 2019. Some of my favorite poets are Mary Oliver, Charles Wright, and Charles Bukowski. I currently work as a registered nurse and as a programmer at a small video game company a friend and I founded this year. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and I’ve found poetry is the ideal way for me to express myself. I’ve had some work published in Eve Poetry Magazine, but primarily post my work to Twitter (@ryanwritespoems). I’m currently working on my first chapbook. I live in Oregon and am a Pacific Northwest native.
