The two-year position is the county’s most high-profile literary appointment and is sponsored by Arts Council Santa Cruz County, Poetry Santa Cruz, the Santa Cruz County Office of Education and Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
If you’d like to experience his most recent work “Love Has Made Grief Absurd,” focusing on his wife Gloria, a longtime visual artist, struggling with Alzheimer’s Disease. This you tube bite will give you a window into his creative process. It’s a proud moment for the poet in all of us. Congratulations and Bravo Robert Sward.
As a side note: This last year much of my own writing and editing adventures have brought me into the talented fold of local writers and poets work shopping stories and memoir under the guidance of Robert Sward. We are so very lucky and excited to honor such a great guy!
