Paul Doiron  

Paul Doiron is the editor in chief of one of the premier regional magazines in the country, Down East: The Magazine of Maine. He attended Yale University, where he graduated with a degree in English. After college, he lived for a while in Los Angeles, at the ragged fringe of the movie industry. Missing the North Woods, he returned to his beloved state of Maine, where he was promptly struck by lightning while camping with two friends in the White Mountains - a harrowing event that nearly claimed two lives. The first and only feature screenplay he ever wrote (as his graduate thesis for Emerson College) was filmed in 2005 and released by Lionsgate Entertainment as Drop Dead Sexy, starring Jason Lee, Crispin Glover, and Brad Dourif. Before coming to work at Down East, he was the executive director of the groundbreaking writer's center, Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. Paul has won multiple awards for his journalism from the International Regional Magazine Association and has published features in Yankee and Fly Rod & Reel, among other publications. An avid fly-fisherman, birder, and hunter, Paul lives on a trout stream in Camden, Maine, with his wife, the poet and environmentalist Kristen Lindquist.
