Oh, WAM! Buddy!
It was so lovely to see you, even if briefly, at WAM!!! I hope you had a blast. xxx

PS- What was your favorite panel?

I had an amazing time! I definitely wanted more time to talk with old friends--you included--and that's the biggest regret. Favorite sessions: I loved the keynoters, especially Haifa Zangana. The panel on "Dying For Your Entertainment" on the media freak-out about the destruction of female celebrities was very good--I like that speakers didn't necessarily agree with each other. Also, the final panel on abortion ("Who's Talking About It? Is Anyone Listening?") was great--Frances Kissling rocks my socks.

Guh! There was more! I'd love your thoughts! And THANK YOU for working so hard to make this weekend wonderful for MORE THAN SIX HUNDRED PEOPLE!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
