Martha Andrews Donovan

Martha Andrews Donovan, author of the chapbook Dress Her in Silk (Finishing Line Press 2009), is a writer and teacher who lived in New Hampshire for a good many years and recently moved to an island in Maine. Her writing explores the intersections between memory, image, and narrative, and the ways in which the things we unearth—photographs, artifacts, ephemera, and other fragmentary evidence—can help narrate a life. You can view Martha’s work at her blog One Writer’s Excavation: Narrating a Life, Piece by Piece.

Rolling publication & new features

Now in its fourth year, New England Memories has a new publication process and features.

As of 2019, I’ll be publishing accepted work on a rolling basis. That is, rather than publishing a collection of work by 5 to 7 individuals in a seasonal issue, I’ll be posting individuals’ work as it is received, reviewed, and accepted. (The original 8 issues of New England Memories are still available from the Read Past Issues page.)

The Home page of this site now features the titles of the most recently published work with links to their respective pages.

From the navigation menu, you can also browse published work by genre (that is, creative nonfiction, poetry, photography, and artwork), as well as by contributor.

I hope readers and contributors will find these new features helpful. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
