Kim Stafford writes, teaches, and travels to raise the human spirit through poetry. He founded the Northwest Writing Institute in 1986, and has published a dozen books of poetry and prose, including The Muses Among Us: Eloquent Listening and Other Pleasures of the Writer’s Craft and 100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: How My Brother Disappeared. His most recent book is the poetry collection Singer Come from Afar (Red Hen Press, 2021). He has taught writing in dozens of schools and community centers, and in Scotland, Italy, and Bhutan.

Bethany Lee, author of The Breath Between from Fernwood Press, lives in Lafayette, OR in a house at the edge of the woods. Her writing is often inspired by the space at the edge of things--her experiences as a hospice harpist, the year she spent traveling by sea, and the deep silence of her Quaker practice.bethanyjoylee.com
