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

Finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize

Very pleased to see that Killing the Murnion Dogs was named a finalist for the 2012 Paterson Poetry Prize. Next spring I’ll read with winner Dorianne Laux and fellow finalists Wanda Coleman, Martin Espada, Rachel Richardson, and Jason Schossler at the Poetry Center at Passaic Community College in Paterson, New Jersey
