Eva Murray. Sunday, Aug-01-10
Links to current and recent online publications to which I contribute regularly:
"Sea Glass and Scrap Iron"
A "blog" under the "Maine Life" category on Down East Magazine's website
Articles and essays archived under my name in the Working Waterfront newspaper published by the Island Institute
A monthly column in Rockland's Free Press
"A Letter from Matinicus"
Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors Magazine's website
Under the "online" section click on "correspondents" and then "Eva Murray." These pieces are different from those published in the print magazine.
Links to a few other things I can recommend if you're in the area:
(Splatter Kids is a wonderful messy art studio for little kids in Rockland, Maine. Remember the underscore between "splatter" and "kids" in the website name)
(an old-fashioned campground with small boat launch beach and ocean view in South Thomaston, Maine. Great for kayakers, tent campers, and autumn "leaf peepers.")
(great coffee shop and second-hand book store in Rockland)
(nothing to do with Maine...useful for astronomy people and stargazers anywhere...remember the hyphen in the website name)
Tilbury House, Publishers (check out their complete catalog of books, many about Maine or maritime topics)
(Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association)
(blacksmithing, bladesmithing, and welding classes)
Eva Murray first came to Matinicus as the teacher in the island's one-room school. She is a freelance writer, an EMT, runs a small seasonal bakery from her home during the summer, is married to the island's electrician and has raised two children on Matinicus.
