‘under the storm’ review in the philippine star

Thank you to Jordan for the tip about this review by Juaniyo Arcellana. My poem, “Crime Scenes”, is among the poems highlighted:

Of the younger poets, Eliza Victoria shines in the sheer creativity of her “Crime Scenes,” where form and content meld and blend in a fine, cinematic mix. Her newspaper background and orientation come handy in breaking down elements of the crime story, though the stuff here is not something you would read in the metro page or come across in a mission expose documentary. Watch out for her, in a few years she is bound to out write many of the so-called fixtures in this allegedly uneven anthology.

Crime Scenes” was a featured poem of Asia Writes in 2010.
