2021 Island Journal

Island Institute
| /

The Island Journal, an annual publication of the Island Institute, offers insights into island and coastal life through personal profiles and stories, fiction and poetry, and stunning photography and art. 

The 2021 edition, Volume 37, takes a look at three of the largest and most ecologically diverse bays on the East Coast—the Chesapeake, the Narragansett, and the Penobscot—and features stories about young island leaders, Maine art and artists, small businesses during the pandemic, and much more. Plus, this year’s issue also includes a special addition—an original poem by Maine’s governor, Janet T. Mills.

Be sure to check out the folio of Michele O'Keefe's etchings which are currently on display in the Archipelago Gallery through September 25th. 

Full of beautiful images and storytelling, the Island Journal is perfect for your coffee table, your ferry ride, or as a gift for anyone who loves Maine’s islands and coast. Get your copy today!
