"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
My second full-length collection, Notes from the Journey Westward, winner of the 17th Annual White Pine Poetry Prize, is officially for sale at the White Pine Press website. Really humbling to be in a catalog that includes James Wright, Robert Bly, Marjorie Agosin, David St. John, and so many other essential poets and writers.
