A little old man living his carefree days nestled quietly in the foothills of the Ozarks. This is Monty Wheeler. A student of creative writing at Arkansas Tech University, Monty is compelled to fashion emotionally galvanizing poetry without the convoluted similes and metaphors that some believe necessary in quality verse. Monty’s work speaks to the reader in a classical way while never forgetting that poetry can be just plain fun.
