Headshot of poet Lauren Seal, a white woman with chin-length dark blonde hair. She is wearing a lilac blouse and is smiling. She is standing outside in front of a tree.

Lauren Seal is a writer, librarian, and St. Albert’s third Poet Laureate. She mentors the teen and young adult poets of SWYC, the Spoken Word Youth Choir, and performs in the adult incarnation of the group. When she isn’t busy reading and writing books, Lauren can be found composing poems in her head on long dog walks.
