Joe Wilkins

Another Essay in Orion

IMG_2983 IMG_2984

Crazy late with this (I’m just catching up), but I have a short essay in the September/October 2014 issue of Orion. As with every issue of Orion, this one is required reading; I mean, new work by Terry Tempest Williams, Luis Alberto Urrea, Brian Doyle, and Kathleen Dean Moore, as well as reviews, poems, and so much more–if you aren’t subscribed to Orion, well, you’re missing out!

    Congratulations, Joe! A gorgeous essay in one of the finest journals out there. I inhale every one cover to cover. Your work is one of the reasons why. Wishing you and your family a blessed New Year!

    Thanks for the kind words, Dawn. I read it cover to cover each month, too!
