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

National Magazine Award


The Ellie Trophy

Wow. My essay “Out West,” orginally in Orion last fall, has just been nominated for a National Magazine Award (also known as an “Ellie”). And I’m up against Garrison Keillor, Mitch Albom, and Michael Pollan!

    Congrats, Joe!

    Your essay, “Out West,” kicks ass, even if you wisely chose not to. Good luck!
