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

Willow Springs

I’ve long admired Willow Springs, the literary magazine out of Eastern Washington University’s MFA program, and am jazzed to see my poem “Theodicy Envoy” in the latest issue. Here’s a bit from Willow Springs’ website:

Willow Springs publishes the finest in contemporary fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, as well as interviews with some of the most notable authors in contemporary literature, including Marilynne Robinson, Stuart Dybek, Aimee Bender, and Robert Bly. Founded in 1977 and published twice yearly, Willow Springs features two interviews per issue, as well as arresting essays, fiction, and poetry by a diverse variety of writers—from the unknown and up and coming, to U.S. Poet Laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners. An indispensable resource for writers and readers, Willow Springs engages its audience in an ongoing discussion of art, ideas, and what it means to be human.

In our 30 years of publication, Willow Springs has looked for and published fresh and established voices in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, including those of Tobias Wolff, Jorge Luis Borges, Yusef Komunyakaa, Louis Jenkins, Denise Levertov, James Grabill, WS Merwin, William Stafford, Charles Bukowski, Chris Offutt, Robert Olmstead, Michael Martone, Robert Hass, Michael Heffernan, Tomaž Šalamun, Bret Lott, Sam Hamill, Naomi Shihab Nye, Alice Derry, Paulann Peterson, Osip Mandelstam, Patricia Henley, Thomas Reiter, Bill Tremblay, Tom Crawford, Mark Halliday, D. Nurkse, Elizabeth Murawski, and hundreds of others from around the world.
