Like a Girl: Perspectives on Feminine Identity is an anthology of poetry, prose, and art based on what it’s like to be a girl. I had the privilege of collaborating with co-editors, Nancy Lynee Woo and Terry Wright, on this year long labor of love. We spent countless hours sorting through hundreds of submissions, painfully narrowing the selections down to this beautiful collection. This has been by far the most challenging project I’ve worked on, stretching and honing my design and layout skills to the next level. The visuals are only half the story. The impact to the heart continues when you read the poems and stories shared by vastly talented people. Each time I get to meet one of the contributors in the book, I feel like I’ve met a old friend part of a grand feminine community.

On Sunday, October 25th, we’ll be having our second release event in our home…

“In Pocketing Feathers, J.D. Isip takes an elegance I can only say is equaled by Whitman and created a complete photo album of his life in, sometimes, Bukowski-esque bare-knuckle terms.  His ideas are complete and the music his words create when read aloud is its own, multi-genre soundtrack.  I am amazed at the heart of light even in his most painful memories.  Isip does not pull punches.  He does not write for shock value.  The last thing this gentleman is looking for is pity.  No, Pocketing Feathers is an honest look into a tumultuous life where self-discovery has its own, unique jazz and growing pains.”
