Ticket Outta Here and Other Poems
Javy Awan

Ticket Outta Here and Other Poems, by Javy Awan, collects 12 previously published poems that have appeared in Poet Lore, Potomac Review, Ekphrastic Review, and other journals and online showcases such as the 2019 Marblehead Festival of the Arts. A former editor and publications director in Washington, D.C., Javy Awan now lives in Salem and is a member of the Tin Box Poets. He has read at local North Shore open mics and was selected to read at two of the 2019 Improbable Places Poetry Tour events sponsored by Montserrat College of Art.

“There’s something filmic about [Javy’s] work….[He] could be an avant garde director.”

Claire Keyes, author of The Question of Rapture, Rising and Falling, and What Diamonds Can Do
