Advocate for Writers 
Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance
Being a writer is a solitary pursuit. Yet as the only statewide organization devoted to supporting and promoting Maine writers, the MWPA does an outstanding job of forming a community around a group of artists notoriously difficult to corral. With writing retreats, workshops, literary awards, and fellowships, a membership to the MWPA is an invaluable network for an aspiring Maine writer to join. 207-228-8263. mainewriters.org   

Music Radio Show 
In Tune by Ten
In Tune by Ten on MPBN probably should have been rendered obsolete by Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes playlists. However, host Sara Willis outperforms any Pandora algorithm in the art of creating the perfect playlist. While online stations offer predictable suggestions, like R.E.M based on your interest in U2, Willis will teach you that, actually, Tom Jones and Vampire Weekend are a match made in heaven. Listen to MPBN at 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Sunday at 10 a.m. mpbn.net
