The power of story is the foundation of Saint Paul Almanac, a literary arts-centered organization. For 15 years, storytelling has been and continues to be the life force of Saint Paul Almanac.

Our mission is to share stories across cultures, and to cultivate dialogue that promotes understanding, relationships, and collaborative action. Since our inception in 2005, we’ve successfully accomplished and continue to achieve our mission through unique and equitable programming that uplifts and supports our artists and their communities.
