…And we’re back!

We hope everyone had a successfully relaxing winter break, filled with delicious baked goods, loved ones, fireplaces, fir trees, and snow (in no particular order.) It seemed like Maine was going to be in for an unusually mild winter, but the snow has really started to pick up now.

We have some exciting announcements to make this upcoming week, including the winners of the Dos Cosas Award and the Betsy Sholl Award.

Our wonderful journal designer and Art Director, MECA senior Adriana Warner is currently working on the layout of the journal and we’re sending letters out everyday, so keep your eyes peeled for more journal content and announcements.

Book and Bake Sale

W&I knows everyone loves books and baked goods. And if you’re anything like us, you like to multi-task and read while you eat (which admittedly results in a miniature mess. Don’t judge us for who we are.)

We invite you to our Book and Bake Sale on November 14th from 10 am – 2pm in the lobby of the Luther Bonny building on USM’s Portland campus.
We’ll send you on your way with delicious baked goods and a book or two. We’re selling used books for a suggested donation of $3 a pop, as well as current issues of the journal (for a reduced $15) and back issues for a suggested donation of… whatever you’d like to give us. Come ask us questions about our contests, or just get to know us.


There will be snacks!


Get Involved!

It’s that time, folks – that time where we send out a rallying cry to those USM students who love the arts. ALL the arts: Sounds, sights, escapades, meaningful shenanigans and of course, words & images.

We are looking for people who want to participate in the production of next year’s Words & Images. We need poetry and fiction readers/editors, art editors and artists, marketing representatives, line editors and critical, creative eyes.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know – report to the SGA Office in the Woodbury Campus Center on May 2nd at 3 PM for a general interest meeting.

If you can’t make it, but are still interested, e-mail Caroline at caroline.oconnorthomas@maine.edu.

We hope to see you there.
