Up Close and Personal
Elizabeth Ely is Editorial Director of Princeton Green Publishing.
Beth takes great pride in connecting people with ideas — your ideas, new-paradigm, 21st-century ideas. Her first assignment was to edit a newly revised edition of Ann Emerson and Bo Lockwood’s excellent guide to 21st-century living, ESSENCE.
“Helping authors polish their beautiful writing about vital ideas is the dream of a lifetime,” she says. “So many ideas go unheard because of unprofessional presentation and lack of attention to promotion, and I am committed to helping every author communicate their passion and their greatness.”
Beth’s career has spanned Dallas and New York City in legal assisting, freelance writing, alternative-health Podcasting, public/media relations, and financial editing.
Beth holds a master’s degree in journalism, allowing her to indulge her curiosity about the world. In 2016, she returned to her hometown on the shore of Lake Huron, where she is a fourth-generation member of a small, post-industrial community moving surprisingly rapidly into 21st-century ideas of economy, spirituality, and culture.

Bo’s eXpansive awareness enables him to see through the veil of illusion, discovering his truth, finding his voice, and regenerating his life in a very meaningful way.

“There’s no better way to spread transformational change than through written and spoken words,” he says. “I follow my heart and trust my intuition. I resonate with those who are taking inspired action, carrying out their piece of the Divine plan.”

In addition to leading the community within princetongreen.org, he encourages the next generation of innovative designers in his positions as a high school teacher in fine and digital arts at Bridgeport International Academy and a professor at the University of Bridgeport.
