John R. Birkbeck's Profile:
I was a late bloomer, and had not published a poem until I was in my middle forties. Since then, I've published five books of poems, and have appeared in numberless magazines, web zines, journals, and anthologies, world-wide. Before I retired, I made my living, for over thirty years, as a scientific illustrator, and worked for Dr. James Van Allen for whom the radiation belts round the earth are named. Before that, I had spent eight years in the Air Force, and after that, wandering aimlessly, round the world, taking courses at universities in whatever place I'd settle into for a while, and work at low-paid, dead-end jobs until I finally went to work for James van Allen at the University of Iowa. I studied mostly literature and art at the universities, and still maintain a painting studio in downtown Iowa City. In retirement, I've found a new career in Television Production at a couple of local stations, In fact, I've just finished taping a reading by a WWII veteran who gave a reading about his experiences as a combat medic. This brings me down to this present moment as I type out this form, very happy to be a member of this wonderful group of poets. I think I've finally found my El Dorado!!
