My perception of Virginia Woolf has always been one of a super-intellectual. I can't imagine anyone thinking differently if they know anything about her at all or read her work.

Right?! I am so confused about how this article could exist without any sense of irony. It comes THISCLOSE to saying the only reason she is remembered is because she dated women. To laugh or cry?

like. who's afraid of virginia woolf????

indeed. apparently, more people are afraid than we thought.

Oh, GOd. And "The Independent" wrote that, not some random tabloid or free paper that you pick up at the tube station...

  • 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.
