Wanted urgently!

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Publishers who understand ecological crises, monetary damage, and the imperatives of radical change. Publishers open to new models for human societies, who understand multiform and experimental texts, who get biodiversity and the relationships between food, energy and ecology. Publishers who are giving up on perpetuating anthropocentric pollution ideology and who promote the composting of hierarchical and unjust social orders. Publishers who value the reclaiming of low-carbon, regenerative technologies, thought and deeds and believe they can contribute to a future of aggregating uncertainty and struggle but nonetheless joy, resilience and intelligence.

If you know of any publisher that fits such a description please let me know.

I reckon you should get in touch with Wakefield Publishing in Adelaide, SA. They published the likes of "Green Australia: A Snapshot" (Lancaster, 2012), "One Magic Square" (Houbein, 2008) and "Outside The Square" (Houbein, 2012). They have a reputation for publishing manuscripts on environment, ecology, indigenous issues, and gay / lesbian themes. I think a publisher is at a certain stage of enlightenment when they specialise in these areas.

thanks pavel, great to hear. but it wasn't really a call out for my work, rather a challenge to mainstream thinking more generally. writing and publishing belong to a long lineage of civil colonisations that have over turned long established oral-ecological-sustainable cultures. i see writing and publishing now only serving a transition back to sustainable patterns that indigenous peoples knew so well, not entrenching more abstraction and civil reification. wakefield sound like they're part of such a transition. i'll check them out.

I remember the wild foods from my childhood village of YORK in W.A. Mushrooms by the bucketful and what I called puddings, the unripe seed of a mallow ( I think) Also chewing on the stems of what we called sour grass flowers. And on my bush property in NSW harvesting food from cumbungi a water weed and sometimes eating very young bracken fronds, which I think had to be cooked. There was also a native creeper, name I've forgotten, blue flowers, edible yellow berries and if you had the patience the TINY, TINY berries of the native cherry.
