Paloma Press’s chapbook anthology, After Irma After Harvey, is a fundraising project by its editors, Aileen Cassinetto and C. Sophia Ibardaloza, created in support of hurricane-displaced animals. Containing poems by Ivy Alvarez, Mary Kasimor, Agnes Marton, Lisa Suguitan Melnick and Eileen R. Tabios, all proceeds will be donated to the Animal Defense League of Texas and the Jacksonville Humane Society.
Ivy Alvarez welcomes new clients for poetry coaching and guidance.
“Need guidance, coaching and mentoring for your poetry? I’m accepting new clients for September and January. Message me for rates.”
“Red Room Poetry Object is a selection of workshops, linked to an Australasian poetry competition, that invites students (Years 3-10) and their teachers to write poems inspired by their special and curious objects.
“In these unique workshops, students will be guided by celebrated Filipino-Australian poet Ivy Alvarez as they investigate the mysteries of their objects. Drawing on personal and re-imagined stories, students will use poetry as a tool to explore the universe of hidden histories within their treasured belongings.”
