Contemplative

Kevin Wilkes

Freelance Writer

Location icon United States

I'm a freelance writer, originally from the rustbelt city of Pittsburgh, who has lived in China for five years and traveled over East Asia. I have taught English Literature for five years in many settings including a Juvenile Detention Center in Colorado and an AP Center in Chengdu, China. These experiences have informed my worldview, and I distill my perspective into every piece I write.

I am a lover of language and literary fiction and nonfiction, and I combine my influences into a unique style. From the historical insights of Yuval Noah Harari and the cultural observations and Douglas Murray — to the winding sentences of David Foster Wallace and Virginia Woolf, I blend the utilitarian with the creative and spark my readers with a renewed fascination of linguistic expression and form.
