Oliver de la Paz received 2009 GAP Award funding for purchasing a laptop computer in aiding the creation of a poetry book manuscript titled Grace Equations. The poems are biographical and theological in nature, deep-rooted observations that wrestle with the speaker’s new identity as a father in a world filed with strife. Oliver’s meditations on Eschatology incorporate his interests in the notion of grace, meaning, and the afterlife.
