WICHITA — Fighting villains and leaping from skyscrapers is natural for Wichita-centered poet Bryan Dietrich. The only caveat is he does these actions in an alternate planet a person he creates with pen and paper. 

With a mother cloistered in her bedroom and a father globetrotting the world with the U.S. military services, learn poet Bryan Dietrich spent much of his childhood with his siblings — alone.

He browse voraciously and at an early age was launched to Superman, Surprise Woman and the Joker. Both superheroes and villains intrigued him. As a kid escalating up in Oklahoma, their earth grew to become a portion of his universe. 

Getting been nominated for 4 Pulitzer prizes in poetry as perfectly as a two-time finalist for the Bram Stoker Award, Dietrich’s poetry goes deeper than just the outer layers of superheroes he explores their psyches and can make them 3-dimensional, always informed of their strengths and vulnerabilities.
