Today is a good day. It’s the day we have been waiting an entire year forthe day the first submissions of student writing have made it to our mailbox. These aren’t just any poems; they’re poems full of invention and heart, and they showcase the best of each student’s skills.

Now, we just need some more student poems and essays to befriend them so that we can go about setting up a full-fledged book. We’ll keep you updated on our progress as always, and we invite you to keep sending in your submissions to us at:

William Stafford Writing ProjectOoligan Press369 Neuberger Hall724 SW Harrison Street

Portland, Oregon 97201

Please remember, April 30 is the contest deadline. There are only eighteen more days to send in student work, but you’d better believe we’re looking forward to opening the mailbox on each and every one of them.
