Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay joined the board of the St. Paul Almanac

Award-winning writer Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay has joined the  board of directors of the St. Paul Almanac.

The Saint Paul Almanac is a literary organization that creates  opportunities for understanding, learning, and building relationships  through sharing people's stories. As a community-driven publication,  the almanac's editors find writers everywhere—"talking to their  friends and family, people at restaurants, the farmers' market, festivals, writers' groups, coffee shops," said founder Kimberly  Nightingale.

A Lao American resident of St. Paul, Vongsay was declared a 2011  Changemaker by Intermedia Arts for her community service. She was a  co-chair of the 2010 National Lao American Writers Summit and the  acclaimed Legacies of War: Refugee Nation Twin Cities multimedia  exhibit. Vongsay has been at the forefront of bringing Lao Minnesota  literary arts to national prominence.
