Congratulations to Seattle’s first Youth Poet Laureate

June 11, 2015

Seattle YPLBack in April, we mentioned that Seattle was searching for its first Youth Poet Laureate. They found her!

Leija Farr, a junior at Cleveland High School, will be working with writing mentors, sharing her work at readings and completing a manuscript to be published by Penmanship Press in New York. Follow Leija Farr’s performance schedule on the Seattle Youth Poet Laureate Facebook page, watch/listen to her performing her poem “Gun” at Cleveland High and read an article and interview published on The Seattle Times Education Lab blog.
