Editor in Chief
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 produces and edits Transition Voice, the online magazine on peak oil and the coming life of earthy labor and, hopefully, nicer manners. She also writes Lindsay’s List, the women’s energy conservation and lifestyle blog.
Locally, she’s the co-founder of Transition Staunton Augusta where she curates the Local Motion Film Series at the Mockingbird Roots Music Hall, leads a community garden and speaks on the Transition movement.
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.
She is currently the creative director of The Curren Group, a communications and marketing agency that provides public relations, ghost writing, editing, social media, and graphic design services in Staunton and online.
Lindsay earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University and attended the University of Virginia as part of its Community Scholar program. She’s the mother of two teen-aged daughters.
