Thank you for visiting my website!
Dear writers: Summer’s on its way and I’m able to take on a limited number of clients. I promise reasonable rates for editing/consultation work. Whether you’re working on poetry or prose, a chapbook or a full-length collection, I can help you see your way to a more complete work. I also am available for consultations regarding promoting your recent or forthcoming publication or setting up readings in Texas bookstores.
For special prices on manuscript consultations, you can also go to my recently posted GoFundMe Campaign: http://www.gofundme.com/w56y7f4
Saddle Road Press out of Hawai’i will be publishing my second full-length collection of poetry, Blood Sugar Canto, in January 2016. Pre-order available now! Books will be shipped out mid-January!

“Silva is a poet-curandera who “sings the body electric,” transforming suffering into song. She probes the ways that love, justice and forgiveness help heal our individual selves and our communities. I am profoundly grateful for ire’ne’s hard-won wisdom and poetic gifts.”
–Demetria Martinez, author of The Block Captain’s Daughter
Enduring Azucares, a digital chapbook featuring 7 poems from Blood Sugar Canto in English and Spanish is available now from Sibling Rivalry Press. Translations by Julieta Corpus.
