Happy to report that my poems “Jaew,” “Commodity,” and “Laos in the House” will be part of the collection Lao Voices of the Central Valley from LSA Fresno State, drawing in part on my family’s roots in Modesto and Ceres. Looking forward to seeing their results, and happy to see our students coming together to make it happen. There’s still time for you to submit work, as well.
The Lao Student Association of Fresno State is in the midst of producing a book that represents the unheard Lao voices. “There are so many talented Lao writers and artists here in the Central Valley and we believe that this book is necessary. Books are how we preserve our stories and pass on to the next generation.”
Please submit all work to them by November 12th.
