About the Author:

Keya Acharya is an independent journalist and researcher, who has been writing exclusively on environment and development for many years and has various national and international publications to her credit. She also teaches development journalism and development issues to media students in Bangalore, where she is based and has conducted several media training workshops. Keya has travelled extensively in the course of her journalism assignments, reporting from various countries on subjects as diverse as solid and hazardous wastes, to human rights, corruption, forestry and wildlife, climate change, agribiotech and others.



Frederick Noronha is a Goa-based journalist and the founder of the India-EJ, the environmental journalists’ cyber-network that links those writing on green issues across India. His works focus on developmental themes and he recently launched an alternative book publishing venture, Goa, 1556 http://goa1556.goa-india.org. He is known for his work on Right to Information issues (including in unearthing the frequent-but unnoticed crashes of Sea Harrier planes of the Indian Navy), and effectively linking campaigners who worked on a long and successful drive to launch community radio in India.

Review:

The Green Pen is a book about environmental reporting... The book explains how reporting on environment cannot be done in isolation; it is connected with political and economic dimensions. It calls for journalists to have a scientific understanding of environment to be able to report credibly. There are essays on photojournalism, gender and environmental movements...All essays represent strong views and first-hand experience of the active contributions in the field. [The book] is a must have for all journalists, not particularly for those reporting on environment.--Current Science

The Green Pen - a collection of essays on environmental journalism is a much needed and welcome addition. It is not simply a conventional book on environmental issues, debates, movements and so on, for a change, this collection is a rare reflection on the state of environmental journalism and reporting.... a very rewarding book. A must read for all those even remotely concerned with environmental issues. --e-Social Science

The Green Pen, a collection of essays edited by Keya Acharya and Frederick Noronha, is an effort to create public awareness regarding the dangers of climate change. This is the first book to highlight the role of environmental journalism in South Asia, recounting the diversified experiences and predicaments of some of the most acclaimed environmental journalists in the region while focusing on what Darryl D'monte calls 'the context of the development versus environment debate' in the brilliantly written foreword...The Green Pen is a sincere effort to bring this 'amused-to-death' humanity to their senses.--Dawn

The Green Pen is an excellent primer to the evolution of environmental journalism in South Asia--Down to Earth

The Green Pen is an anthology of writings by environmental journalists touching upon the various dimensions of the crises, challenges and experiences of environment reporting in the Indian subcontinent and some of its neighbouring countries.
