You never fully understand the power of silence

ABOUT ME

Kevin Isaac

I decided to start a blog to share my poetry, insights and observations. I want to communicate more directly with readers in an unfiltered way.

It’s hard to believe but I have been writing poems, and a bit of short stories, since my teenage years.

My Podcasts

Kevin is extremely interested in breaking down that boundary, in bringing VR and other digital technology to his poetry.
