"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea
I have two poems, “A Prayer” and “Then I Packed You Up the Ridge Like a Brother on My Back,” appearing in the latest issue of the Southern Review, the esteemed and long-standing journal out of Louisiana State University.
I’ve been reading the Southern Review for the last year or so and have been incredibly impressed; from cover to cover each isssue is nothing less than stunning. If you’re looking for great new literature, this quarterly is well worth the money.
