Alexandra Isacson’s Comments

On Writing

Writing can be a mystical process for me. Sometimes I feel as though I enter a sacred place, transcending time and self. As emotions are being transmuted on the page, I can feel fragmented, euphoric, or anyplace in between.

On Poetry

This poetry is part of a larger body of work written to honor the humanities.  “The Dead Syphilitics’ Society” poem inspired a novella I’m writing with the same name.  I’m working on other writing as well.
