Poet, essayist, and teacher Kim Stafford returns to Santa Sabina with an invitation to explore writing to awaken the self, sustain the spirit, and enrich the world. Kim will respond to the resonance of time together at Santa Sabina during which we will be called to insight, receptivity and counsel in the art of writing and the art of living. There will be time to listen, learn, write, share and reflect.
Kim Stafford grew up primarily in Oregon, following his parents as they taught and traveled through the West. He is the author of a dozen books of poetry and prose, and the director of the Northwest Writing Institute, and co-director of the Documentary Studies Certificate Program at Lewis & Clark College, where he has taught since 1979. He holds a Ph.D. in medieval literature from the University of Oregon and has worked as a printer, photographer, oral historian, editor, and visiting writer at a host of colleges and schools, and offered writing workshops in Italy, Scotland, and Bhutan.
