Are you planning to go for a long hike in 2019 – two weeks or more?
Do you like sharing your stories with others?
Do you love writing about adventure?
All Women All Trails is looking for women who want to blog about their hiking experiences. We want to hear about the planning, the prep, the highs, the lows, the struggles, and the triumphs. We want to follow along and cheer you on. We want to celebrate your victories and encourage you when you’re down.
What’s the commitment?
We’re happy with as much or as little as you want to write. Contribute one or two articles as a guest writer, or commit to regular updates – every week or two, or whatever you can manage.
What would I write about?
That’s up to you. We welcome straightforward how-to posts, gear lists, and logistics while you’re planning your adventure. If you want to explore the emotional and psychological side, that’s great, too. If you just want to chronicle your hike with journal entry-style blog posts, awesome. Whatever you feel comfortable writing is welcome.
What do I get out of it?
All Women All Trails is a huge community – 35,000 women and counting. We are supportive, encouraging, and empowering, and we’ll send all that good energy with you on your hike.
In addition to having your words shared with thousands of readers, you’ll be able to join our small community of writers and bloggers in a private writers-only Facebook group and connect with other amazing, inspiring women for advice, feedback, or just some good vibes.
We are working on a writer’s handbook that you’ll receive when you join our team. In addition, we’ll help you edit and craft your posts to be the best they can be!
We’ll be sharing your posts directly into our group, in our newsletter, and on our own social media channels. You’ll have a bio on each of your posts, and after publishing three articles, you’ll also be featured on our writer’s page. You can include your social media links in your bio if you’d like to publicize them (Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc).
What if I already have my own blog?
That’s fine! You are welcome to write for us while also maintaining your own blog. We just ask that content posted on All Women All Trails is new and original, and that you hold off for 24 hours before cross-posting elsewhere.
Anything I should know about formatting or posting?
We’re pretty flexible, and we want your own style and voice to come through in your writing. We aim for 500-3,000 words, with 3-5 photos (or more!). We try to make it easy for you while you’re on trail – you don’t have to worry about figuring out how to post on the website – just send it over to our team via email or Google Drive and we’ll do all the technical formatting work and getting it online.
How do I apply?
