Frank Wilk

Born in Central Pennsylvania, the heart of “coal country,” Frank Wilk grew up in a very liberal, blue collar home. The oldest of four siblings, Frank was the first in his family to graduate from college, earning a B.A. in Criminal Justice from Bloomsburg State University. He shares “I am passionate about people! I love being outdoors, and around people. Humans are what brings purpose to our lives.” At every mention of his children, Franks face literally lights up in both joy and deep thought. “I have four children, and I am very passionate about being a father. I am a firm believer that children need to have an equal voice, and that there is no purer form of love and honesty than from a child. What a privilege it is to guide them!” About his writings, Frank says “My poetry gives me coping ability. It is a lyrical flow that eases my flow in life, and keeps my feet on the ground. It keeps me moving in the direction I need to go.”
