Kim Robert Stafford (born October 15, 1949) is an American poet, academic, and essayist
Stafford lives in Portland, Oregon. Since 1979, he has taught writing at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. He has also taught courses at Willamette University in Salem, at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, at the Fishtrap writers' gathering, and private workshops in Oregon and Italy.
He was also a contributor to the Multnomah County project When You Were 15, in which "adults from our community share their stories about how an adult made a difference to them when they were fifteen. Several stories from today’s young people prove that they, too, need caring adults. These real life stories show how even a small act of encouragement can make a big difference in a teen’s life."
His work is featured at the Orenco Station on the Rings of Memory Plaza and the Witness Tree Rest.
