Win $1,000 and a publishing contract with Chelsea Green by submitting one of the best proposals for the next book in our Green Guide Series!
Think you’ve got what it takes to become our next author? Have a good idea for the next Green Guide to Technology, Green Guide to Travel, Green Guide to Remodeling, or Green Guide to … Something Else? Then take a crack at writing a proposal for our next Green Guide! See the contest description and guidelines below. Good Luck!
Our big idea.
We launched our new website to bring together our readers, authors, staff members, progressive bloggers, and others in a virtual community built around a simple goal: change the world. And change starts with great ideas that can be put into practice. That’s why we are inviting the community members who come to this site to enter our Green Guide Contest.
Our Green Guide series is a collection of big ideas in small packages.  Current guides convey the basics you need to know to confidently get started composting, biking to work, greening your office, lowering your energy footprint, recycling to the max, and conserving water. And they convey it all in a small, 92ish-page format. In fact, our guides are small enough to travel in pockets, concise enough to make green practices seem as easy as they are, and useful enough to help their readers actually change they way they live and work.
So, about that contest.
Write to us, tell us about a Green Guide you would like to research and write, why you’d like to write it, how it should be illustrated, and a bit about yourself. If you’re one of up to five winners we’ll offer you a publishing contract that includes an advance of $1,000 against royalties.
For how to enter, see our contest guidelines below. Deadline for entries is July 4, 2008 (yes, Independence Day) in honor of the local, independent communities we hope the Green Guides will help create—free from the domination of fossil fuels, global warming, and toxic pollution.
We want to put your best ideas about how to live and work more sustainably into print.
Green Guide Contest Entry Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in our Green Guide contest. We know there are many people out there with great ideas on how to live and work more sustainably and we look forward to seeing your entry.
