History and Purpose

Arcata Press | Saint Paul Almanac was created in 2005 with the artistic goal of bringing the Saint Paul community together through the literary arts.

The Saint Paul Almanac is a people’s meeting space for sharing the stories of our community through our annual book, public readings, and a unique community editor mentorship program. Our leadership, employees, participants, and contractors (editors, artists, filmmakers, etc.) reflect a multiplicity of ethnicities, which is a guiding principle put into daily action for engagement in the arts in Saint Paul.

Saint Paul Almanac exists to center the people of our community into the heart of storytelling, story sharing, and all other literary activities.


Saint Paul Almanac is a literary-centered arts organization. We share stories across cultures and cultivate dialogue to promote understanding, relationships, and collaborative action.
