A warm welcome to Ivy Alvarez, the new editor of a fine line.
Hello! I am delighted to serve as editor of a fine line, New Zealand’s most indispensable magazine for new and emerging writers of poetry, published six times a year by the New Zealand Poetry Society.
Should you wish to send me your writing for consideration — and I hope you do — please visit our submission guidelines.
Selected writers will receive book tokens as payment for their work. a fine line has a wide readership, and NZPS works actively to promote its writers.
I am looking for poems from NZPS members (max 40 lines). (Not a member? Join here.)
In upcoming issues, I have slots available for several writing-related articles (max 750 words). Suggested ideas are:
- articles on poetic forms
- A step-by-step guide to getting your poem published
- Best Places to Publish Your Poems When You’re Starting Out (which will include a fine line, of course)
- Three Things I’d Tell My Younger Self about Publishing My First Book / First Poem. This will be a regular column.
Please pitch me your ideas and/or send your poems to email@example.com
Deadline for September issue: 25 August 2016
I am the author of several poetry collections, including The Everyday English Dictionary (London: Paekakariki Press, 2016), Hollywood Starlet (Chicago: dancing girl press), Disturbance (Wales: Seren, 2013) and Mortal (Red Morning Press, 2006).
Born in the Philippines and raised in Australia, I lived in Scotland, Ireland and Wales, before coming to live in Auckland in 2014. Here’s my website.
I look forward to reading your work for a fine line. Thanks!
