Emily Isaacson's Books

Hallmark: Canada's 150 Year Anniversary

This book of collected poems by Emily Isaacson is written about themes that have influenced Canada and Canadians over the past decade. It seeks to create a postmodern impact by using color and style paired with the creativity necessary for survival. What people will do to survive as an overarching question, notices even the desperation people may have to save what matters most to them, in an environment that is unstable. 

Emily Isaacson has worked in three art galleries, both on the board and as a volunteer, and the influence of modern art on her writing cannot be dismissed. She introduces a new style of décor, the “Canadian Eclectic”. She sets out using both rhyming and unrhyming form, and even inlcudes thirty new unpublished sonnets.

Emily Isaacson, poet and author

Sometimes the best way to pioneer a new way of life, a new philosophy, or a new concept is to depict life with a different outcome in story form. Emily Isaacson is a storyteller at heart, who seeks to share her rich and diverse life experiences with her readers. She has been writing almost three decades now, and is using her art to benefit various non-profit organizations. 

Emily Isaacson has published over 1800 poems. She has combined them with art, photography, and music online for a multimedia effect. She has reached over half a million people from 45 nations with her message of poetry and art, and the illumination it offers. 

Emily Isaacson’s book A Familiar Shore deals with the subject of cancer and aboriginal healing. It is a timely issue, and addresses the questions of life and death, of survival and healing, and the circle around all of natural medicine in a community context.

The Clay Road Foundation for artists

Every artist is unique, yet they all have something in common. It is our commonalities and our differences that make up our diversity. We seek to be creative in response to what life offers. We look for resources to teach, cultivate, and inspire us.

Art in itself is a very cultivated, skilled activity that represents civilizations from antiquity. It creates images, words, objects, and even monuments. It puts a face on the drama of the rise and fall of empires, and enlists hieroglyphics. Sometimes humanity is depicted in stick figures, sometimes cartoons, paintings or photographs. 

People drive art, and without people and their varied perceptions, art would not exist.

Passion is their forward movement . . . 


What are prophets but the trumpets blown by God to stir the heart?


Emily Quote

The song was threnody,

bittersweet watch over the night:

like a nightingale’s tone,

hung over the branches

and the vestiges of time.

She sat beside the monastery wall

at Westminster Abbey,

and composed in her usual way,

refusing to war with moths

 for the light.
