Thursday Shout-out – 14 – Steve Isaak

All writers should promote their own work. It’s no good standing at the back of the room waiting for someone to notice you, because this world of writing is a crowded one and you will very likely just be elbowed out of the way. 

However, I do also believe that as the Beatles sang “In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” So as writers we should speak up for other writers as much as, or arguably more than, ourselves. 

One of the writers who has spoken up for me, and always with generosity, is Steve Isaak. We live a continent apart, have never met and probably never will, but thanks to the wonders of the worldwide web we have a writerly connection. Read Steve’s blogs here and here.

Cheers Steve!
