Sails & Tales: An Island Studies Journal

Welcome to Sails & Tales, a new online journal featuring the work of students in the Master of Arts in Island Studies program at UPEI.

With a focus on that most elusive of concepts, ‘islandness’, the journal takes you on a voyage through mostly uncharted waters, through stories, poems, essays, and images – both still and moving. We invite you to come along for the ride!
