Joe Wilkins

Two Weeks

My poem “Letter to My Son Concerning Our First Night of Birthing Class” is included in Linebreak’s fascinating new project, Two Weeks: A Digital Anthology of Contemporary Poetry. You can buy the book (and listen to a reading of my poem!) via the link above.

Here’s a bit more about the project from the website:

Two Weeks is a new anthology of contemporary poetry, released exclusively in ebook format. The book was compiled, edited, designed, coded, and published in exactly 14 days.

Our purpose was to test how quickly a book of poetry could be crafted given new technologies, and to prove that neither speed nor technical limitations need diminish editorial standards or strip essential formatting. We hope you enjoy the result.

New poems from Bruce Bond, Geoffrey Brock, Dorianne Laux, Seth Abramson, T.R. Hummer, Oliver de la Paz, Joe Wilkins, Hannah Miet, Jazzy Danziger, Randall Mann, Jeffery Bahr, Matthew Henriksen, Mary Meriam, Amanda Auchter, Ernest Hilbert, Matthew Zapruder, Brian Spears, Rachel Richardson, Christina Stoddard, Kimberly Grey, David Roderick, Josh Kalscheur, Kerry Krouse, Benjamin Glass, Rose Hunter, Lauren Camp, Jon Tribble, Patricia Lockwood, and more …
