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

Environmental and Nature Writing

environmental-and-nature-writingFinally, as I catch up on things that passed me by in the rush of this last fall semester, I’m really excited to see that Environmental and Nature Writing: A Writer’s Guide and Anthology is now available from Bloomsbury Academic. Sean Prentiss and I worked super hard on this one, and we think it’s a great text for classes in environmental studies programs focused on writing, as well as classes in English and creative writing programs focused on nature and the environment. And the anthology is, uh, really damn good. We’ve got essays, stories, and poems from a host of the sharpest, bravest, wisest, and most diverse nature and environmental writers working today, including Camille T. Dungy, David Gessner, Jennifer Lunden, Erik Reece, David Treuer, Bonnie Jo Campbell, Alyson Hagy, Bonnie Nadzam, Lydia Peelle, Benjamin Percy, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Nikky Finney, Juan Felipe Herrera, Major Jackson, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Natasha Trethewey, and many more.
