Hi Anna,

I was very happy to find your site today through Emerging Writers Network, it's probably one of the best "about books" resources that I've stumbled into...I'm always digging around for something new to read, and feel that I have to get caught up! I've added you to my bloglist on "Upstate Girl" so my friends and readers can find you too!

Best wishes,


Such kind words, Laura -- thank you! And thanks for the tip on your own website; it's a lovely thing. Such pretty photos!

I've heard this name (Adrienne Rich) a lot in the past few days. Now I really want to read this and I also know a person to give it too (your list of people to gift it inspired me).

  • 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.
