You don’t eat just once every few days. You don’t speak just every week or so. Learning is continuous, and hunger is closer to breathing than to an annual rite. So why not write daily? We will feed on examples from the daily writing of William Stafford, and practice in the spirit of his work. The emphasis will be on the process of creation: creating texts the length of poems but for use in multiple genres. The goal will be to know what it feels like — in the body and in acts of sustaining witness — to practice the continuous writing life you have imagined.
This class meets on Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13
Kim Stafford is the author of a dozen books of poetry and prose, most recently Wild Honey, Tough Salt (Red Hen Press). In 2018 he was named Oregon's Poet Laureate by Governor Kate Brown. He teaches writing at Lewis & Clark College, at Fishtrap, and at the Sitka Center.
