Hi, I’m Isaac Originally from Wirral, I’m currently an MLitt student at University of Glasgow and reporting officer for North Music Trust. In the past I’ve worked as an actor, amateur production manager, and programmes intern for the National Centre for Writing; as well as an onslaught of customer service jobs. I hate confining myself to one thing and like exploring art I might not be familiar with, especially when it’s experimental and crosses the boundaries between disciplines. My dream project is an intersection of poetry and light vandalism.
Your ultimate desert island disc track: Love Bites (So Do I) by Halestorm.
If you had to be locked inside one gallery overnight, which would it be and why? The Biscuit Factory: it’s a small gallery, but so interesting and welcoming I feel like I could build a little house inside.
What’s a poem you can recite on demand? Mina Loy, Love Songs ‘XIV’
What was the last book that made you cry, or laugh out loud? (or both!) Boy Parts by Eliza Clark had me laughing out loud a few times. As far as I can remember only one book has ever made me cry.
If you could have written one novel, what would it be and why? Água Viva by Clarice Lispector. The entire reading experience is like hanging out with a friend who’s cooler, smarter, and hotter than you and I’m immensely jealous that I could never write a book like it.
