Hietpas’ poetry a finalist for state award

Sequim author Gina Hietpas’ “Terrain,” a collection of her poetry, was named a finalist in the 2021 Washington State Book Awards, poetry division.

A Sequim resident since 1981, Hietpas taught U.S. History and language arts at Sequim Middle School, and was a reading program specialist before retiring in 2010.

“Take a Stand: Art Against Hate, a Raven Chronicles Anthology,” edited by Phoebe Bosché, Anna Bálint and Thomas Hubbard, took home the top state award.
