Joe McKnight was born in a small Alberta farming community. He started his schooling in Ardrossan where he developed a love of story telling. His love of writing continued to grow throughout his school years. In 2004, while upgrading his English 30, Joe’s passion increased. It was during that same year he stumbled upon a writer’s circle (offered by the Writers Foundation of Strathcona County) that offered the support and encouragement he needed. He continues to grow in his writing and looks forward to many future literary ventures.
Joe joins his writing friends in the Writing Prompt Journey as one of the seventeen contributing writers featured in the compilation book. He is also one of five featured artists contributing illustrations to the book. Joe's artwork also appears on the cover of From a Solitary Drop - he was commissioned to design the illustration featured on the cover.
