My prayers are with you and your family, hoping for your full and speedy recovery. Although I have never met you, I feel as though you are a personal friend as I ride through your adventurous poetry. God Bless...

I wish Dean Young a swift and full recovery! I love his work-- perhaps his new beating heart will share in the rhythm of the next poem he writes. All the best,

I also wish Dean a swift and full recovery. His work has touched my life, the art I make, and how I view the world so much in the past couple years. I wish him nothing but smooth sailin from now on.

Thank you,
David J. Matheson

I love his work, I wish Dean Young a swift and full recovery!

Dean Young is so lucky because there are still people who are willing to donate some organ to save someone's life.

  • 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.
