Sonam Deki teaches at Royal Thimphu College. An unabashed poetry enthusiast, of the reader (not the writer) breed, she believes that life is best chronicled in poetry. She describes her profession as a ceaseless undertaking to infuse an appreciation and love of literature in her students. And every now and then, she is richly rewarded. She has co-edited Riyang’s collection of poetry, Folded into a Paper Boat and Lomba, a young adult novel by Pema Euden. She also worked with READ Bhutan on four children’s books, Ashi Jazha, Tendu Akhey Gem, Takchung Gadpu, and Sharchog Gyalpo and Ashi Yangchen as part of their folklore project.
