Volume 14 • Number 1 • Spring-Summer 2022

By Invitation Only

We are proud to showcase work by students at Thunder Mountain and Yaakoosge Daakahidi high schools in Juneau, Alaska, newly back to in-person learning post-pandemic. The students turned in such living, vibrant work to their teacher, Sleet Poetry Editor Jamie Buehner, that both she and Editor Susan Solomon knew it could only be housed in Sleet's most exclusive category.
