"Untitled" by Anahi Moreno

Updated: Jul 7, 2022

You’ll drown dear. You’ll drown

As a 11th grade student at Pocomoke High School (class of 23), Anahi Moreno aspires for her writing to invoke emotion and memories. She started writing poetry in her middle school years, following along with the courage to submit for contest in high school. She has one 3rd place in the Eastern Shore Young Author’s Literacy Contest, and is ready for her writing to reach new limits.
