Spire invites submissions for online conservation journal

Spire: the Maine Journal of Conservation and Sustainability invites submissions for the fifth issue of the online journal planned for spring 2021. Issue 4, released in April 2020, is online.

Editor Clinton Spaulding, a University of Maine communication and media ecology doctoral student, says the editorial staff seeks to include voices from a diverse range of people throughout Maine and the Northeast to join its mission to galvanize action for conservation and sustainability by promoting impactful, awareness-raising dialogue.

Submissions should in some way concern the environment, conservation and/or sustainability — whether it’s current developments, ongoing issues, scientific findings or artistic insights on environmental themes. 

Work that can broadly be connected to Maine is encouraged. Visit the Spire website to explore past issues to see the range of work included in the journal, as well as submission guidelines.

Deadline for submissions is Feb. 1. Send submissions and questions, including about how to join the Spire team, to spire@maine.edu.
