Honoring Big Stories by Writing Brief Chapters
Date: January 16 2013 5:00pm - 8:00pm Location: Lewis & Clark Graduate Campus
Teachers, students, and other citizens often carry stories too big to manage, or secrets too strange to tell.
As a launch for the book 100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: How My Brother Disappeared, this workshop will explore how “the trick of beginning” can release possible epiphanies from the silence of impossible stories.
The evening will include refreshments, writing time, readings from the book, and music by Jan DeWeese (Banjo) and Kim Stafford (guitar), singing songs from the CD “Pilgrim at Home” (Little Infinities, 2009).
Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
This workshop is part of our 2012-2013 Workshop Series.
This event is full and registration has been closed. Thank you for your interest.

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 stores we have carried into poems, essays, radio commentaries, blessings, rants, parables, and other forms of “tikkun olam,” the healing of the world.
