This Challenge invites participants to consider ways to Publish and Thrive (rather than Publish or Perish), with ideas and insights from librarians, faculty, students, and staff from UMaine and beyond. Each day, for five days, you will engage in tasks designed to build your publishing acumen, such as identifying where to publish and present your work, examining your rights as an author, and increasing the visibility of your work. Additionally, you will have opportunities to share your own insights and experiences, and hear from UMaine faculty and graduate students who are publishing and presenting in a wide range of disciplines.
Activities are presented as daily "challenges" that participants might accomplish over the course of one week. However, each activity stands alone and can be completed separately from the others and at a time that is convenient for you.

The University of Maine recognizes that it is located on Marsh Island in the homeland of the Penobscot Nation, where issues of water and territorial rights, and encroachment upon sacred sites, are ongoing. Penobscot homeland is connected to the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations — the Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac — through kinship, alliances and diplomacy. The university also recognizes that the Penobscot Nation and the other Wabanaki Tribal Nations are distinct, sovereign, legal and political entities with their own powers of self-governance and self-determination.
