Your Thoughts

Yes, we writers are a sensitive bunch, our already fragile egos berating us with self-doubt inflicting running commentaries. In spite of it, we want to know what you think, what you want, and what you don’t want. Send us your reactions—the good, bad, and ugly.

Please be gentle. For all inquiries, applause, and complaints, you can reach the editor at


The East is overseen by an enthusiastic group of writers and photographers who are passionate about all things Maritimes; if you’re reading it, you probably are, too. We are always looking for fresh voices. You’ve heard our stories. We want to hear yours. If you’d like to become a regular contributor, have a story to tell, or an uncovered Maritime treasure to boast about, pitch it here. Bonus points if you know how to use a semi-colon.

Join us. We’re weird, but harmless. Show us what you’ve got here.


The East has advertising opportunities for local businesses around the Maritimes hoping to engage an audience of arts-and-culturally-minded readers. With a growing readership and social media presence, we are fearless in the face of arid financial landscapes! Our predominantly Millennial audience is chomping at the bit to buy locally curated goods. Here’s your chance to show them just how local you are.
