Ivy writes about women and men, about hard subject matter that needs to be brought out into the open. It’s muscular, raw writing that grabs hold of anyone who reads it…
The ‘hyperbolic real’ is a term that might also describe the poetic light and sound that Ivy Alvarez brings to ‘salty slurry’ in her poem ‘Nabagoóng’.
Guest Fiction comes from the brilliant mind of Ivy Alvarez.
Loved the intense physicality of the poems, so tightly bound into their sounds as well.
Alvarez is able to deconstruct and interrogate language and contextual meanings at a highly granular level, and craft a series of compelling re-interpretations.
