Maine the Way at Rolling Fatties

Maine the way 1“Word Buzz” series kicks off for the winter on Thursday, December 7 from 6:30-8pm with the engaging young partners Cameron Held and Christine Reighley, creators of Maine the Way, a new Maine-centric magazine. Word Buzz is a community event to chat about books or other word related topics. Rolling Fatties donates 10% of sales during the Word Buzz event to Webster Library here in Kingfield.

Maine the Way is a new print exploration of Maine. Using the concept of “slow-journalism”, Cam and Christine actualize the 160 page quarterly with in-depth articles, photo essays, poetry, and illustration. Issue 1 met readers in November 2017 and includes a photo essay about Portland’s adversity, “Running North” an article about the tradition of dog sledding in Maine, and chapter 1 of The Extraordinary Story of the North Pond Hermit. The magazine delights with visuals and fascinates with long-form writing.

The magazine grows from a viral Maine Instagram account, @mainetheyway, founded by Christine in 2014. Christine is a Mainer. Her love for the Maine coast as well as the woods and inland waters inspired her creation of @mainetheway, a photography based account of our great state. And that’s how she met Cam.

Cam came to Maine to go to college and after graduating, he landed a photography internship at The Schoolhouse Gallery here in Kingfield. He lived at Rolling Fatties–in the literal and in the he-ate-Fatties-every-night sense. Rob says, “Cam is living proof that a daily habit of enjoying a Fatty stimulates creativity and productivity. His photography is something else.” Cam is also a talented filmmaker, writer, boat captain, and beer drinker. Together, Cam and Christine are excited to have this new platform that supports the arts and artists of the state of Maine.
