Lindsay Tice

Staff Writer, Sun Journal

Lindsay Tice is an award-winning journalist with 20 years experience in the field. She graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a degree in creative writing and has worked for weekly newspapers, the Portland Press Herald and the Sun Journal in Lewiston, where she currently covers health care and breaking news. She is also one of the paper’s principal reporters for investigative pieces, long-form features and Sunday packages. Her pieces regularly garner national attention and range from light-hearted (a feature on a basketball-playing dog) to compelling (a look at child abuse perpetrated by nuns at a local Catholic orphanage). If a story has a chance to inspire, enlighten or educate, she wants to tell it.

Tice has won numerous honors for her work, including the New England Newspaper & Press Association’s Public Occurrences Award — twice. She was named Maine Journalist of the Year for 2012-13 and at one point had won more Maine Press Association awards than any other journalist in the association’s remembered history. A firm believer that good journalism is society’s heart and conscience, she’s taught writing to both children and adults and has spoken at a number of colleges, classes and forums.
