If this is your first time on the St Lynn’s Press website, welcome! We hope our readers and authors and newcomers to SLP are as excited as we are to bring this blog to life.
You’ll be hearing from all the SLP staffers and interns (like me!), who will share what our world is like, both in and out of the office. Stay tuned for Q&A’s with our authors, gardening news, ‘Burgh news (or Pittsburgh news for all you non-Yinzers) and lots of pictures that will occasionally bring a smile to your face. We haven’t asked them yet, but we’re hoping our authors will take the reins now and then to offer tips and pics from their gardens, kitchens, workshops and everywhere in between.
2014 is a special year for St. Lynn’s because we are celebrating ten years in the publishing world. Paul founded St. Lynn’s way back in 2004 in Pittsburgh. We still call Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood home, our office sits on the former J&L Steel Mill site, but a lot has changed since then. Today, we have more than 50 titles in print, ranging from a ramps cookbook to bottle trees to living off the grid.
Just this month we learned that the Garden Writers Association (GWA) awarded us two Silver Awards of Achievement for Fine Foliage by Karen Chapman and Christina Salwitz, and Slow Flowers by Debra Prinzing. These awards are the “Oscars” of the garden writing biz. We are so excited to share this honor with Karen, Christina and Debra!
Silver Awards recipients become semi-finalists for the Gold Award of Achievement for Best Talent or Best Product. GWA Gold Media Awards will be revealed during the GWA Annual Symposium in Pittsburgh on Monday, August 11th. We’ll talk about the Symposium as it gets closer. For now, we’re still doing the happy dance over our first-ever Silver Awards. Paul’s cousin asked to see a pic of him doing this—we agreed this wasn’t a good idea!
