Fiddlehead Focus, a new print/web publication based in Fort Kent, has joined the MPA as a full member.

Fiddlehead Focus has been in business for 20 months, publishing a free six- to eight-page newspaper on tabloid sheets to report news from northern Aroostook County and invite readers to its website,, which carries more news content. The newspaper can be downloaded from the website.

Andrew Birden, the publisher of Fiddlehead Focus, says readers have snapped up the newspaper each week and the website gets more than 700,000 page views each month.

The MPA board voted on Feb. 23 to accept Fiddlehead Focus as the association’s newest member.
