Sheryl Noethe is Montana's new Poet Laureate!
The Montana Poet Laureate recognizes and honors a citizen poet of exceptional talent and accomplishment. The Poet Laureate also encourages appreciation of poetry and literary life in Montana. The two-year appointment begins in August 2011.
In his appointment letter to Noethe, Governor Brian Schweitzer wrote:
I was particularly struck by your statement, "a few words from an adult can shape a child's idea of who they are and who they can become." Your commitment to teaching children that they "have the ability to find their own literary voice" is evidenced in your outstanding work in Montana schools.
