Historical Note

Sagetrieb was a journal devoted to poets in the Pound-Williams tradition. Vol. 1, no. 1 was published in spring 1982 by the University of Maine in Orono and the last volume was published in 2013/2014. University of Maine English professor Carroll Franklin Terrell was the first editor of the journal.

"The Writing Teacher" publication (1983-1986) was sponsored and published by several English departments of the University of Maine. It was supported in part by the National Poetry Foundation, University of Maine, and in part by a grant from Chancellor Patrick McCarthy.
