featured poet ~ Steve Isaak

Steve Isaak is a published writer of  poetry, prose and erotica. i love his poetry {to find it on his blog   READING & WRITING BY PUB LIGHT  click on the LABEL  POEMS in his right sidebar.}  on the 12th & 28th of  every month Steve does a post of  Quotes. {i haven’t asked him why the 12th & 28th.} on Mondays he offers “3 Word Week” {it’s fun to use all three words as prompts, but he never makes it easy} and on Wednesdays Steve publishes short stories {no poetry} on his blog  Microstory A Week  {click  HERE for submission guidelines}  if  your story is selected for publication, he will then provide exposure on both of  his blogs and Steve’s  facebook page  for links to any works which you get published.  {he was kind enough to publish my prose version of  “Camellia.”}

Steve’s personal taste as he describes it is ~

“My favored genres, the ones that really make me go wow are:

– speculative — i.e., stuff that’s Twilight Zone-ish, not quite “hard[-technology]” science, but with “what if. . .?” elements infused with that science-fiction-ish feel. . . stuff with “edge” but doesn’t completely break from traditional/solid story telling – but doesn’t spoonfeed the reader, either.”

here is the official bio from Steve’s blogs   READING & WRITING BY PUB LIGHT   and   Microstory A Week   ~

Steve Isaak has published a hundred and sixty poems and stories, in print and on the Net. His work, sometimes by-lined as “Nikki Isaak”, has been published on the adult websites   Erotica Readers & Writers Association,   Flashes in the Dark,    Every Night Erotica,    Divine Pleasures    among others. He is the author of three paperback anthologies    Can’t sleep: poems, 1987 – 2007,    Charging the scarlet b-sides: microsex stories & poems    and the forthcoming Nightwired: poems as well as the editor of two blogs:   Microstory A Week and READING & WRITING BY PUBLIGHT.”
