Ivy Page is a poet whose poetry has been described by Ross Gay as, "passionate, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious poems, (which) always have a deep and generous intelligence." She lives in the White Mountains of New Hampshire with her husband and two daughters.
Her love of poetry stemmed from listening to her Grandmother reading poetry aloud to her as a child. It took shape as lyrics in the music she wrote during her late teens and early twenties, and turned to poems on the page and experimentation with performance poetry over the years.
Ivy Graduated from Plymouth State University with a BA in English and minor in Medieval Studies, and went on to complete her MFA in Creative Writing at New England College. She has taught creative writing for Plymouth State University’s Community Education program, and currently teaches a creative writing workshop at D Acres in Dorchester New Hampshire. Ivy also teaches at New Hampshire Technical Institute, Keene State College, and Axia College.
Her work has appeared in journals nationally, and her first book will be available through Salmon Poetry of Ireland in March 2012. She is the editor and founder of Organs of Vision and Speech Magazine.
