The University of New England's Add Verb Productions has announced the publication of its first book, Out & Allied Anthology, featuring youth-written monologues, short plays and poems. The thirty-four performance pieces were selected from well over 100 submissions from youth in Maine and across the country. The material focuses on the experiences of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning) youth and the importance of allies. Included is a guide for directing, producing, and writing original pieces and other resources.

Add Verb premiered an Out & Allied based performance (July 2008) at SPACE Gallery in Portland for the National Convention of Chapter Leaders of the Gay Lesbian Straight Educators Network (GLSEN), and was featured in a short MTV documentary. The project went on to win the Portland League of Young Voter's Award for "Best New Youth Project" with favorable reviews as a "powerful, evocative and unique" performance "powerful enough to create change."

A reading and book signing at Longfellow Books in Monument Square will be held on June 15 at 7 PM, and Add Verb will have a table at the Pride Festival in Deering Oaks Park Saturday June 18.
