Hi there, my name is Melissa! Found this through a friend's Facebook post. First of all, love your writing. You're great! Second of all, my voice coach of several years is an expert in communication and self-expression and her specialty is helping clients "find their own voice." Literally her website is called findingyourvoice.com. Her name is Jennifer Hamady and she's a genius-- I know that I came to her for singing but I discovered whole new realms of myself that I didn't know existed. My speaking voice totally altered and so did my body language. Through becoming more authentic physically and emotionally I was able to access my innate musicality (you have it too!) Anyhow, it's hard to put words to this sort of thing but she can help you with singing and speaking and everything in between. Here are her blogs on Psychology Today and Huffington Post (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/finding-your-voice), (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jennifer-hamady) and her book, which got amazing reviews is at theartofsinging.com and you can order that online... it has lots of info and a practice CD. I know I am inundating you with information but I feel compelled to share the gift that she is! Wishing you all the best on this journey and always feel free to email me for more info: melissamarcmusic@gmail.com

The world needs more of your voice, Anna. Don't you dare for a minute to accept the lies and fear that your inner voice tries to tell you. Your story matters...sing it loud!

  • 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.
