Beautiful post! This is so interesting and feels very real:

"I've come to think that the reason these stories feel so slippery to me is that they are not my own. These are stories that want to be told with more voices than my one."

In some ways that applies to every sort of literature and story. But especially to your experiences in Kenya. Nice, nice work.

Thank you, margosita, for your kind words!

  • 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.
