Gene Logsdon Series in Sustainable Living

The Gene Logsdon Series in Sustainable Living seeks manuscripts that explore ways in which humans can coexist harmoniously with nature and each other. This includes both practical guides and more reflective writings. Locally and globally, sustainable practices conserve and restore natural resources, while fostering diversity, stability, and stewardship in settings from the rural to the urban. This Swallow Press series is named in honor of the late Gene Logsdon, an Ohio writer and farmer. Logsdon devoted his life to furthering ecological, humane, and human-scale approaches to farming, gardening, and living with others in community.

Manuscripts should be approximately 90,000 words and no more than 100,000 words in length.

Inquiries regarding submission of proposals or manuscripts should be directed to the series editor, Richard S. Gilbert, at
