Every month, the MWPA sends out e-newsletter called Ex Libris Maine, which exclusively profiles recently released books by MWPA members. The newsletter is sent to a large group of recipients, including our entire MWPA membership and numerous literary organizations, bookstores, libraries, and media outlets. Inclusion in Ex Libris Maine is free for individual and institutional members.
*Please Note Ex Libris Maine only features books published within the current month or the two previous months—for example, the March edition can feature titles published in March as well as February and January. In order to keep Ex Libris Maine a resource to announce newly released titles, we are not able to include older books.
To submit a book to Ex Libris Maine, please send us all the information requested below in an attached Word document—not in the body of an email. All of the information and attachments must be sent in a single email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Ex Libris Maine Submission.”
