W. Nick Hill, emeritus professor of Spanish and Latin American literature at Fairfield University, was drawn to Port Townsend, Washington, by the poetry of the place. During his tenure he authored numerous scholarly articles on Latin American poetry and theatre and was granted several fellowships and grants, the last being as an NYU Faculty Resource Network Visiting scholar.

Also a translator, Hill's rendering of Biography of a Runaway Slave, as well as two other novels were published by curbstone Press and he has translated many poems for various U.S. reviews and journals. His versions of poems from Mexican poet Jorge Fern ández Granados's Principle of Uncertainty have come out in Literal, eXchanges, and Mid-American Review where the translation chapbook "Constructed on Coincidence" was a feature of the 2010 30th anniversary issue.

The Americas Review, The Bilingual Review, and others have published Hill's bilingual and Spanish-language poems. Mundane Rights/Ritos Mundanos, his bilingual chapbook, was a finalist in the 1997 Sow's Ear Poetry Review chapbook contest.

Hill was the Port Townsend Farmers Market manager for two years and served on its board of directors until 2010. Among the plants in his garden is saffron, the golden spice.
