Welcome to Green Writers Press!
We are a Vermont-based, global publisher. The term ‘localvore’ applies to our mission, which is to publish books, eBooks, and audio books that will spread a message of hope and renewal. We strive to build awareness to stop the global climate catastrophe. (Here is a link to an article about our inception inÂ Publishers Weekly.)
It isÂ our mission, at Green Writers Press, to spread a message of environmental activismÂ through the words and images we publish. We also publish books which, while not quite related to that goal, speak to our quality of life and the beauty of nature. Printing on demand (POD), and using only FSC-certified papers printed at our Vermont printer, Springfield Printing Corporation, at Thomson-ShoreÂ in Michigan, Bookmobile in Minneapolis, and at our Tennessee printer, Lightning Source, we will adhere to GWPâ€™sÂ commitment to preserving and protecting the natural resources of the earth.Â To that end, a percentage of our profits will be donated to environmental activist groups likeÂ 350.orgÂ and other groups that the author is part of (social justice groups, etc.).
Our vision is that, collectively, our printed and eBooks will become a chorus of voices of writers, readers, artists, and photographers, who care about the fate of the earth and want to do something about it. Though we believe our books will be interesting to Vermont residents, Green Writers Press has national and international (Gazelle, etc.) distribution and we hope to have a broad reach and impact. Our voices need to be heard, which is why we refer to our press as a global press. We are all connected on this planet we love.
Our books areÂ printed with soy-based inks on paper made with a chlorine-free process,Â utilizing technology calledÂ “Printing on Demand (POD).” We adhere to GWPâ€™sÂ commitment to preserving and protecting the natural resources of the earth, utilizing responsible environmental,Â social, and economic practices.Â Environmentally responsible
