Honors Journal

Spring 2020


For the second time we have come together as an honors program and de- cided to showcase students’ work. Our honors students drive and motivation here at Farmington goes beyond expectation. Time and time again students push limits and comfort zones to come up with amazing ideas, thoughts, and advice to their fellow students and themselves. In their works it is clear the power writing and art has in their expression. It is our special privilege to be able to showcase the bold, authetic works each of our contributors brought here for publication.

The University of Maine at Farmington Honors Journal has become a safe space for Honors students to simply do what they do best; to create. To imagine. In our second year publishing this journal we still have many obstacles to face, but we have learned from our six contributors, that there is perseverance, and strength in moving forward. In the dark times that this year has cast over us, may this Journal be a light for rejuvenation.

—The Editors, BrookLyn Miller and Makena Pauly
