Lucas Richardson studies at Palmerston North Boys High School as a member of the Class of 2022. From a childhood in Massachusetts and Alaska to high-school life in New Zealand, he has always had a passion for writing and reading. Stumbling on Polyphony Lit has improved his own English skills and engaged his creative mind. The quality of writing he has been privileged enough to edit as a First Reader has motivated him to get his own writing 'out there' more often. Outside of writing he can be found debating, playing badminton, or practicing clarinet and piano.
