Click Here to Register Today!

  • For the 2018 exhibit, select a favorite phrase, passage, prose or poem, published or unpublished, by one of Maine's many women authors. Find your own source or come into the Library and ask at the Front Desk to see our table with ideas.
  • Use that written work to inspire you to create your item for the exhibition.

The woman author you select may be a children's

author, a fiction writer, biographer, writer of cookbooks,

gardening books or scientific books, a lyricist or more,

published or unpublished. The authors are all women from Maine,

or they have made Maine their home for a significant stretch

of their lives. In the description of your piece, you will

name the author and the work that inspired you.

  • You may use any medium to create your item, and you need not be an "artist" to participate.

 Entries are accepted on first-come, first-served basis.

  • Deliver your item to the Library, fully ready for display, between February 22 and 28, 2018.

Instructions on how to prepare your item for exhibit will be emailed to you after you register.

The Library will also need a high resolution, digital image of

your work, and will send those instructions upon registration.
