Lindsay Curren has no intention of ending up the Scarlett O’Hara of the 21st century, dizzy and confused as neo-Rome burns. Instead, the Staunton, Virginia based writer, designer and high-heeled survivalist edits Transition Voice, the online magazine on peak oil and the coming life of earthy labor and, hopefully, sexy corsets — or rather, nicer manners.
Because conservation is the top strategy to address energy decline and climate change, she writes Lindsay’s List, a blog on conservation that’s focused on how women can make a difference by pairing lower energy consumption with a higher quality of life.
For over twenty-five years Lindsay has worked in communications, writing and editing for Virginia papers and magazines, with three years on the arts staff at The C-Ville Weekly in Charlottesville. From 2000-2006 Lindsay worked as an online discussion moderator and producer with washingtonpost.com, specializing in interactive conversations on politics, policy, and business.
