Will's most recent book of poems, Unsettled accounts, won the 2009 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize and was published in February of 2010 by Ohio University/Swallow Press. On its basis, he was chosen as a Walter E. Dakin Fellow in Poetry for the 2010 Sewanee Writer's Conference and as 2010 Ohio Poet of the year (selected by the State Library of Ohio). He has previously won an Individual Endowment for the Humanities, most of which have involved translation of various Italian poets. Most recently, this involved translating the sonnets of Sara Coppia Sullam during the NEH Summer Institute of "Venice, The Jews and Italian Culture" in 2006. Subsequent presentations and articles have focused upon the translation of Sullam's sonnets. Other N.E.H experiences included a summer Institute on Literary Translation at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1988. His previous volume of poems, Conversing with the Light, was chosen by Henry Taylor for the 1987 Anhinga Prize and published by Anhinga press of Tallahassee. He has also translated Umberto Saba's first volume of poems, Trieste and a Lady, and that volume is currently in circulation with publishers. His current poetry manuscript, tentatively, titled Scraps and Damaged Lots, is nearly finished. He serves as Professor of English and Dean of Arts & Sciences at Rhodes State College in Ohio.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
