South Chapel

William Stafford, who taught at Lewis & Clark for thirty years, was widely known for two things: his daily writing practice that resulted in over sixty books of poetry and prose, and his life-long witness for peace and justice. In this workshop, we will write in the spirit of his work in order to experience creative practice for a life of witness.

This 3-hour session is a freestanding exploration of practices developed more fully in the weekend workshop Daily Writing in the Spirit of William Stafford, held December 7-8.

This workshop is part of our 2013-2014 Workshop Series

About the Instructor

Kim Stafford is the founding director of the Northwest Writing Institute at Lewis & Clark
College, and the author of a dozen books of poetry and prose, including 100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: How My Brother Disappeared (a memoir), and The Muses Among Us: Eloquent Listening and Other Pleasures of the Writer’s Craft (a book about writing and teaching). He approaches writing as a chance to compose stories we have carried into poems, essays, radio commentaries, blessings, rants, parables, and other forms of “tikkun olam,” the healing of the world.
