Hello all! My name is R. Walter Smith, a writer who works in many forms of literature. At the moment, my portfolio is filled mostly with poetry, which I write often and for which I have a passion. However, I also write short fiction, primarily in the horror genre, and am working on a psychological horror novella at the moment. My poetry spans from the dark and gloomy to the philosophical to the environmental, and makes use of traditional forms, self-invented forms, and free verse. I hope you all enjoy my work!
