Zack Wilson is a writer from Yorkshire, in the North of England. His work has been featured in many different online and print journals, with two short collections, THE MIRROR and LESCAR also in circulation somewhere. Wilson's first full length collection, STUMBLES AND HALF SLIPS, was released by Epic Rites Press in 2012.

“STUMBLES AND HALF SLIPS could be described by many flattering adjectives, however the writing in these twenty-four short pieces is exemplary in its negatives; its very lack of pretense, lack of mimicry. Words come alive, seemingly bypassing the thought process as if poured straight from life itself, expressed in un-sanitized language of common streets.”—Nadine Sellers

“STUMBLES AND HALF SLIPS is a superb insight into the life of a man dwelling in a world occupied by fools. This book implausibly inhabits the grey area between social realism and downright awkwardness; as Ray Doyle, delivery driver, stands as the lone voice of sanity in a quaint English town, struggling to comprehend the maudlin muddle that consumes his mind the morning after a night spent slouched by the bar. Zack Wilson has written a brutally honest account about what it is like to be stuck in the doldrums.”—Richard Wink

“Nothing but raw lives and beautifully minute particulars.”—Rob Plath

“Zack Wilson is one of that most important, yet often most overlooked, breed of writers: a chronicler of the extraordinary hearts that beat out ordinary lives.”—Matthew David Scott
