“We Belong In History” book launch.
In celebration of William Stafford’s Cenennial, Ooligan Press, and student poets will launch the publication of We Belong In History. Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen and a few of the students will share their poetry with you.
in honor of poet William Stafford’s centennial birthday, Ooligan Press organized a statewide writing competition for seventh through twelfth graders.They have compiled the best work, and now the students will get the chance to see their very own work in print, their teachers will have fun seeing them get inspired. Graduate students at Ooligan Press compiled the students’ never-before-seen poems and essays into this book. The competition is a great way to celebrate Stafford, who considered reading and teaching to be essential parts of human life.
