Introduction to Stafford Studies
Date: 5:00pm - 8:00pm PDT May 13 Location: Graduate Campus, South Chapel
Graduate Campus, South Chapel
This workshop surveys the work of William Stafford and begins an inquiry into Stafford’s remarkable creative practices, and the power of words to witness for peace and social justice.
Sampling resources of published books and the online William Stafford Archives at Lewis & Clark College, participants will examine and discuss Stafford’s approach to writing, thinking, teaching, and witness for reconciliation, in order to consider their own approaches to vocation, craft, and citizenship.
Northwest Writing Institute classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
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.
