ORONO — Writers inspired by the nature, fisheries and the coastal heritage of Down East Maine and beyond are encouraged to submit their work to “The Catch: Writings from Downeast Maine.”
The journal is entering its fourth year of publication. Created in 2013, “The Catch” is related to the Downeast Fisheries Trail (DowneastFisheriesTrail.org), a maritime heritage education effort that highlights sites of current and historic fishing interest in Hancock and Washington counties and Southwest New Brunswick, Canada. “The Catch” considers the region broadly, including all parts of the Maine and Maritime coasts.
Submissions of poetry, fiction, essay and other prose will be accepted through December for publication in late spring 2016.
New for 2016 is an “Emerging Writer” category for those writers who have not yet been published.
“The Catch” is supported by the Maine Sea Grant College Program, Raymond H. Fogler Library and DigitalCommons at the University of Maine.
