Early in 2016, with the help of a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, we decided it was time to update and improve not only our very successful events calendar, but our entire website. So, we are busy working on some very exciting changes.

We are hoping to launch our new site and events calendar by early June. Visitors will be able to join Friends of William Stafford, make donations, announce an event, publicize new works about William Stafford, purchase our special edition letterpress broadsides and a lot more.

Of course, we will adding a blog to feature more in-depth news about events and activities. We also plan to link our new site to social networks. We even hope to have a place for new works by writers and poets to showcase work inspired by William Stafford. Our goal is to make it easy to be informed about news and events related to William Stafford.

Please keep in touch with how we are doing by checking our Facebook Page. We will be posting update there.

Be sure to sign up for our Email News. Doing so, will ensure that you get the latest news about events, activities, awards and accomplishments that are in accord with the primary mission of Friends of William Stafford.

While we are upgrading our website, the best place to stay in touch with events, readings and news is to check our Facebook Page.
