Greenwood/Blue Lotus Press and No War No More grew out of the ideas and hopes of a few activists in the Mahoning Valley in Ohio. The philosophy of our press is rooted in a Buddhist, environmentalist and social consciousness. No War No More, A Collection of Poems, Essays, Photos and Artwork for Peace, has finally been published. Doug Fowler, Diana Ludwig and Arya Jenkins worked on this project for some time. Thanks to Doug's fastidiousness and Diana's talents with layout, this project finally came to fruition. NWNM contains work by Doug, Diana, and Arya, as well as Pauline Beck, Donna Brennan, J. D. Curtis, Jim Jordan, Staughton Lynd, Tenzin Palmo, Richard Pirko, Teresa Saska and Bob Studzinski.

Proceeds from sales of the book will benefit the Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery Project in northern India. The nunnery, which was started by Tenzin Palmo, educates nuns in the Kagyu lineage. Some of those nuns will return to their communities as counselors and teachers. More information about Tenzin Palmo's project can be found at

Douglas A. Fowler

Along with an ongoing interest in wilderness hiking and travel, Doug pursues the defense of the environment with the tools of math and science education. He has found refuge at Youngstown State University.

He has had other interesting work as a steelworker, machinist, carpenter, cabinet maker, field-work in hydrology with both the U.S. Geological Survey in southeast Montana and the Forest Service in Idaho, field paleontologist in central Montana, on a forest fire in Idaho, and three years as a school custodian.

He sees writing as a way of making his experience part of that voice crying out a need for meaningful work amidst our new managerial retail landscape.

Diana Ludwig

An artist who is happiest outdoors and a lazy bibliophiliac, who spelunks, rollerbades, picks up red efts, wintergreen berries, ox-eye daisies, x-c skiis, talks to barn owls,  watches birds, foxes, antelopes,  butterflies, toads, praying mantises... snowdrops along the Clarion and bald eagles over, foxgloves down the Belltown way, scrumbles around, planting, drawing, hiking, bogging, botanizing, stargazing, snowshoing, herbing, looking for bats & salamanders, backpacking and camping. When that's done, she reads, writes, paints & does other mixed media art, takes hours-long cyanotype photos, & plays with cats.
