Joe Wilkins

"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

Good News from The Briar Cliff Review

Just heard from Paul Weber, creative nonfiction editor at The Briar Cliff Review, that “My Mother’s Story: Retold and Annotated,” an experimental essay of mine built around a phone call with my mother years ago, has won their fourteenth annual prize in Creative Nonfiction: the piece will appear in the 2010 issue, and they’ll be sending a $1000 my way!

Also, if you haven’t picked up a copy of The Briar Cliff Review, do so. It’s one of the most beautifully-designed journals out there, and there’s great work inside too.
