The Michael King Writers Centre welcomes Ivy Alvarez into its 2019 residency programme.
During her four-week stay, she will be writing poems towards Diaspora, Volume S.
Poet and publisher Aileen Ibardaloza-Cassinetto writes generous words on the poetry of Barbara Jane Reyes, Angela Narciso Torres, and Ivy Alvarez’s forthcoming work, Diaspora, Volume L.
The hay(na)ku form, invented by the poet Eileen R. Tabios, celebrates its 15th anniversary with an anthology, Hay(na)ku 15.
Included are three of Ivy Alvarez’s hay(na)ku, a poem which previously appeared in The First Hay(na)ku Anthology — now translated into Spanish — and a citation of her response to the hay(na)ku form in Abraham Ignacio, Jr.’s Foreword.
