On October 8, our sister publication the Providence Phoenix announced that it would close, ending a 36-year run for the city’s only alt-weekly. 

What that means for our paper is a good and appropriate question. Here’s the answer: We’re fine.

The Portland Phoenix will continue operations as the sole alt-weekly bearing the name, following the closure of the Boston Phoenix in March 2013.

We’d like to acknowledge in this space the fantastic work the Phoenix did in covering Providence culture, and being a voice for the communities of people its city’s larger papers mostly excluded.

Sad as it is to bid farewell to our other publications, we’re very proud to carry on the Phoenix tradition in Portland, and have this city’s hardworking and knowledgeable citizens and the many fascinating communities they inhabit to thank.

We might see slight changes in layout and design, but in general, our paper’s rigorous arts support, engaged culture coverage, and critical news and political coverage will continue undeterred.

    The automobile is a thing of great ambivalence. On one hand, it’s contributed to catastrophic and virtually irreversible climate change, enabled the limitless profiteering of the oil industry, and served as symbolic fuel for a lot of dumb notions of masculinity. On the other, if you’re an American between the ages of 16 and 99, life’s most pivotal moments would have been impossible without them, whether they provided transport, escape, or a soft, cushiony interior.

    It’s a long, ruminative drive from Portland to Parsonsfield, the site of a bizarre, unclassifiable, and oddly intimate sort of production by the renowned Maine artist Amy Stacey Curtis.
