A well crafted life is like a good poem. What is left out tells others every bit as much about you as what is added in.
— Eric Vance Walton


Poetry was the path that began Eric's writing career. In the early nineties his first published poem, German Village appeared in the German Village Gazette newspaper in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.  Eric's poetry has since been published widely in literary journals, magazines, and in book form.
