2022/23 Youth Poet Laureate Release

Tuesday, June 13, 2023

Youth Programs

Join SAL for the release of LOVELIKE, a debut collection of poetry by the 2022/23 Seattle Youth Poet Laureate, Sah Pham! Published by Poetry NW Editions, LOVELIKE is the eighth in SAL’s series of Seattle Youth Poet Laureate books. Sah will read from her new book alongside three 2022/23 Youth Poetry Fellows at Third Place Books Seward Park. At the reading, there will be a ceremonial passing of the laurel to Mateo Acuña, who is the incoming 2023/24 Seattle Youth Poet Laureate. We will also welcome and celebrate the nine other 2023/24 fellows. This event is free and open to the public.

Seattle Arts & Lectures cultivates transformative experiences through story and language with readers and writers of all generations.


Community Access Tickets

We believe that reading, writing, and creative thinking are indispensable to a curious, engaged, democratic society. Our goal is to make these experiences available to as many people as possible, regardless of economic circumstances—which is why we created our Community Access Tickets (CAT) program for our in-person and digital events.
