Island Journal (1984-present) The Maine Island Institute's annual publication of island life has been its keynote publication since 1984, when the first issue arrived in members' mailboxes and was available for purchase. Since then, it has become perhaps the most valued benefit of Island Institute membership, with its stories, poetry, photographs and articles about the myriad facets of "islandness" found here inot only here in Maine but also on islands around the world.
