2022-23 STUDENT POETS LAUREATE
Natalie Lahr, Senior, Sedro-Woolley High School
Natalie Lahr originates from Sedro-Woolley, WA and will be graduating with the class of ‘23 from both Sedro-Woolley High School and Skagit Valley College. Natalie enjoys live music (playing and listening), literary fiction, hiking, candle-making, thrift store finds, and of course- poetry. Her passion to make the literary arts accessible to all prompted her to co-found the SWHS Poetry Club, where she continues to grow immensely from the connections fostered with her peers. Natalie’s first introduction to poetry was via the Skagit River Poetry Foundation’s Poets in Schools program, which sparked her lifelong love for writing.
Meg Henning, Senior, Sedro-Woolley High School
Meg Henning is a senior at Sedro-Woolley High School. She wrote every once in a while, but never seriously until she joined Sedro-Woolley High School’s poetry club. Her work surrounds themes of loss, anger, mental illness, love, and melancholy. She will graduate from Sedro-Woolley High School in June and begin attending Western Washington University in September. Her favorite things include playing or listening to music, classic literature, animated and satirical films, drawing, and drinking caffeinated beverages. She has not founded any clubs, but is a proud member of teen court, music club, book club, and (of course) poetry club.
