"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 poem “Ragged Point Road,” part of a series I’ve been working on, is up in the latest issue of the Nashville Review. Beyond great literary work, each issue of NR also comics and music and all sorts of cool stuff. Here’s a bit from their website:
Nashville Review was founded with two guiding principles: that our venue would be inclusive of all forms of storytelling, and that it would be both free and available online to anyone who wished to enjoy it. Thus, NRseeks to feature those forms of art not traditionally recognized as literature—comics, film, music, visual art, creative nonfiction, dance, oral storytelling and other performance arts—alongside the more traditional forms of fiction and poetry. We also feature interviews and a community section that showcases work from local writers. We publish three issues annually: on the 1st of April, August, and December. NR is published entirely online, and its readership includes visitors from over 100 countries.
