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

“Out West” Reprinted in Draft: The Journal of Process

draft.cover_issue3My essay “Out West” is reprinted in the current issue of Draft: The Journal of Process. But here’s the cool part: everything in Draft–along with my essay, there’s a poem by Matt Hart and a story by Roxanne Gary–is printed alongside an early version of the same piece, so you get to see behind the finished object. You get a glimpse of the process.

The issue also features an interview I did with one of the editors, the amazing Rachel Yoder, as well as a poem that came out of the drafting of “Out West.”
