The editors of “Spire: The Maine Journal of Conservation and Sustainability” are seeking submissions from a diverse range of people throughout Maine and the Northeast for the fourth issue of the online journal, planned for release in spring 2020. Deadline for submissions is January 31.

Produced by a team of graduate and undergraduate students at University of Maine, Orono, “Spire” seeks to prompt action in support of conservation and sustainability by promoting dialogue. Submissions should concern the environment, conservation and/or sustainability — current developments, ongoing issues, scientific findings or artistic insights on environmental themes. Work that can be broadly connected to Maine is encouraged.

Issue 3, released October 2019, is now live. For more information, to submit content, or to express interest in joining the editorial team, email
