Learning How to Live: Exploring the Imperatives in William Stafford’s Work
Date: 6:30pm PST January 22, 2014 - February 5, 2014
Deeply inspired by philosophers, William Stafford often used poetry to teach us how to live: “Your job is to find what the world is trying to be.” In celebration of the Stafford Centennial, this Literary Arts seminar will explore the imperatives in Stafford’s work, the rich legacy he has bequeathed to help us on our journey. Together we will remember and discover: “we must find something forgotten by everyone alive.”
Poet-dramatist Cindy Williams Gutiérrez has taught creative writing to adults through the Attic and the Oregon Poetry Association, as well as to youth through the Right Brain Initiative and Writers in the Schools. Her collection the small claim of bones is forthcoming from Bilingual Press (Arizona State University). Cindy is currently creating an original theatrical work for the William Stafford Centennial in the fall of 2014.
