Souvankham Thammavongsa shortlisted for the Commonwealth

BIG NEWS from Lao Canadian writer Souvankham Thammavongsa, who will be joining us for the very first time at the National Lao American Symposium and Writers Summit.

Her short story "How to Pronounce Knife" was just shortlisted for the prestigious Commonwealth Prize. This is a wonderful milestone for the Lao community, and I hope it encourages many others to take up the pen.
