Chelsea Green Author Contest

Chelsea Green Publishing is a leader in publishing and nurturing books that center around sustainable living and information. On the one hand, writing books on environmental topics is a great way to employ oneself; on the other hand, it educates people about the very important topic of environmental awareness.

“Biking To Work.”

Chelsea Green looks for new authors constantly, and to this end, they are holding a contest to find a new Green Author. Usually, a new writer has to beg publishing companies to give their work the time of day. If words are the fuel for your happiness, and you would like to make a living of it, then please take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. You can get contest details here [www.chelseagreen.com]. Make sure to get started on the contest now because it ends on July 4th.

If you are interested in delving into green books as a reader, then you can make it easy on yourself by checking out The Chelsea Green Guides [www.chelseagreen.com], a collection of six books that Chelsea Green put together for your convenience. This collection looks like it touches on many important aspects of the green lifestyle.

For more than 20 years, Chelsea Green has been the publishing leader for books on the politics and practice of sustainable living. We are a founding member of the Green Press Initiative and have been printing books on recycled paper since 1985, when our first list of books appeared. We lead the industry both in terms of content—foundational books on renewable energy, green building, organic agriculture, eco-cuisine, and ethical business—and in terms of environmental practice, printing 95 percent of our books on recycled paper with a minimum 30 percent post-consumer waste and aiming for 100 percent whenever possible. This approach is a perfect example of what is called a ”triple bottom line“ practice, one that benefits people, planet, and profit, and the emerging new model for sustainable business in the 21st century.
