Poetry New Zealand Yearbook 2020

Johanna Emeney, in an interview with the New Zealand Books Council, mentions Ivy Alvarez’s poems, which appear in the Poetry New Zealand Yearbook 2020.

As Jack has done in previous editions, you’ve given some poets more than one poem. How so?

Some of the poems seemed to belong as a ‘set’. For example, Chris Tse’s ghost poems and Ivy Alvarez’s poems based on Filipino sayings.
