About

Emily Burnham is a Maine native, a University of Maine graduate, and a proud Bangorian. She’s an arts and lifestyle writer for the Bangor Daily News, where she’s worked since 2004, when she started as a lowly intern, before moving up to a full time staff writer position in 2008. She reports on everything from local bands to local food, from media and the Internet to theater and dance. In her quest for stories, she’s seen countless concerts and plays, been lobster fishing, interviewed celebrities, taken belly dancing classes, hung out with water buffalo and played in a ukulele orchestra, to name just a few. She’s interested in everything — especially if it happens in Maine. She welcomes any and all feedback or suggestions for stories.
