Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance

If you live in Maine (or aspire to), take note of this great resource for authors as well as publishing people. The Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance has an active site full of information that supports writers and literary art. The organization's worthy goals are these:

  • Promoting the appreciation of Maine literature
  • Creating a network of writers, readers, and publishers
  • Promoting opportunities for writers to improve writing and marketing skills
  • Informing members and the public of Maine literary and publishing news

Cool features of the site include a message board and a frequently updated member blog.

Publishing Careers gets an occasional visitor from Maine, and I was thrilled with my brief visit to the state back in 2001, particularly the resplendent Acadia National Park.

I wonder whether Maine's most successful writer, Stephen King, is a member.

That would be cool!

Stephen King does lots of work helping the community and is so in touch with his roots. I wouldn't be surprised to see that he was a member.
