Poetry of Place: Artist Spotlight – Alexis Ivy

Posted on October 28, 2013 by Sandy Weisman
Alexis Ivy was one of 10 poets here at 26 Split Rock Cove for the second Poetry of Place weekend. Alexis has been a member of Poemworks: the workshop for publishing poets in Boston for a number of years. and has most recently published a book of poems entitled Romance With Small-Time Crooks. Of this book poet Richard Hoffman says, “These are the poems of a survivor who sheds her delusions, poem by poem, as she investigates her life with honesty and courage …”

Alexis’ unique voice is always a great addition to classes and workshops. We were fortunate to have her here. Look for her on Facebook, and look for her book at www.BlaveVox.com.

Poemworks is directed by Boston poet, Barbara Helfgott Hyett, who was here to teach and bring 10 new poems into fruition over the weekend. She is the author of 5 books of poetry, and has been published in countless journals and anthologies. Look for Barbara at www.poemworks.com or on Facebook at Poemworks – The Workshop for Publishing Poets.
