Online sustainability journal Spire calls

Nov 20, 2017

Orono — Spire, the Maine Journal of Conservation and Sustainability, invites submissions for the second issue of the online journal, slated for release in spring 2018. ​Spire's editorial team of graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Maine is accepting submissions through Sunday, Dec. 10.

Submissions should ​in some way concern the environment, conservation and/or sustainability — whether ​current developments, ongoing issues, scientific findings or artistic insights on environmental themes. Three selections in the inaugural issue include a Maine Woods National Park photography project; a survey of Maine wild blueberry fields, wildflowers and bees; and a story about Ray Phillips, a hermit who lived for 44 years on Manana Island adjacent to Monhegan.

Perspectives from students and people in diverse careers and fields throughout the state are sought to join this dialogue to influence environmental change. To learn more and peruse the inaugural issue, visit Questions and submissions​ can be emailed to
