English professor wins PEN Award for poetry :
Assistant Professor of English Peter Covino won the 2007 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry for his poetry collection, "Cut Off the Ears of Winter." The title is connected to how painter Vincent van Gogh cut off his ear in the winter. Covino said he wanted to cut off the ears to all things violent and negative in his life.

Of his poetry, Covino said, "A lot of it is confessional. In my book, I had to change names."

Several of Covino's poems came from coping with sexual abuse.
