ABOUT 

 

NATALIE

Natalie Young is a founding editor of the award-winning poetry magazine Sugar House Review. By day (and sometimes night), she works as an art director for an ad agency based out of Salt Lake City.
 
Natalie is left-handed, half Puerto Rican and a fan of Dolly Parton and green olives.
 
Her poetry has been published in Los Angeles Times, Rattle, Tampa Review, South Dakota Review, Green Mountains Review and others.
 
 

"She's always creative, willing to explore new ideas, and technically skillful. She has an excellent eye for design. She's fun to work with: very even tempered and has a great sense
of humor."
