Topic: KIM STAFFORD OREGON POET LAUREATE 2018-2020

Kim Stafford, Oregon Poet Laureate 2018-2020, and retired writing professor from Lewis & Clark College, will share some of his poems, and talk about the benefits of adding a writing practice to your life. "Writing poems or short fragments" he says, "can wake us up to hidden blessings in our memories and our daily lives." You can see some of his poems, songs, short films, and other resources for writers here: www.kimstaffordpoet.com And the poems he posts each morning here: www.instagram.com/kimstaffordpoetry His newest book is coming from Red Hen Press in April: https://redhenpress.org/products/singer-come-from-afar-by-kim-stafford
