Ivy Alvarez’s poem, Ligaw-tingin, features in Flash Frontier.
Stemming from a series of poems that responds to Filipino idiomatic expressions, this is the second poem to appear in the journal.
Ivy Alvarez, Jamie Trower and Vaughan Rapatahana feature as guest poets at the Titirangi Poets and Atlanta Review event.
Hosted by Piers Davies, the event starts at 2pm on Saturday, 10th March 2018, at the Titirangi Library, 500 South Titirangi Road, Titirangi.
Ivy Alvarez’s Hollywood Starlet is poet Collin Kelley’s 2017 fave read:
Vivien Leigh, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe and Ingrid Bergman are just some of the acting legends given a fresh voice by Alvarez, who peels away the studio-manufactured façades to explore their inner thoughts and troubled lives. It’s a chapbook I return to again and again.
Read the rest of this crowd-sourced compendium of 2017 fave poetry reads at Dave Bonta’s Via Negativa, which includes Alvarez’s review of Bethany W. Pope’s Silage.
