Lew-Ellyn Hughes does indeed have a way with words, offering tales of everyday life here in Maine that touch us all in significant ways. Her column, Away with Words, is a highlight many of our readers look forward to, including myself who gets a “first look” at these wonderful columns.
—Robert Gray, Jr., Editor, The Original Irregular

Nice voice, funny, with a down-home appeal.
—Peter Chianca, Managing Editor, Community Newspaper Co.

Hughes gives words to a Maine experience.
—Edward Turner, “On Maine Writers,” Book Nook, Lewiston Sun Journal
