Lao American Spotlight: Khaythong Loungamath

Meet Khaythong Loungamath. She is a proud grandma of 11, and she’s been a creative force in the Lao American community since the early years of the Lao diaspora!

From 1987 until 2000, Khaythong wrote under her pen names: Bakka Thong, Dok Boua Thong, Dong Seit Thy, as well as her real name, contributing poetry, news, interviews, and short stories to Sieng Khaen Magazine, one of the first Lao American publications in San Diego.

We thank her for sharing her wisdom and experience with all of us at the Lao American Writers Summit, and hope it will not be too long before we see more books and articles from her.  What are some of the things you learned from her? Share it with us in the comments below!
