About the WebsiteAlthough William Stafford had been recommended to me twice before I knew who he was, I first came across his poems in the stacks of my college library in 2006. Since that moment I have continuously read, written and thought about him. I eventually began a blog about Stafford, and it was well received by the few who saw it, but I felt the need to provide a starting point for those who are not immersed in his work, as well as a place to go deeper for those who so desired. There has always been a lot of web content related to Stafford but no central collection point until the William Stafford Online Reader. I hope this website can help with finding poems and books, as well as guide creative engagement for artists and researchers. Contact me if you have any links, ideas or creations to share.
