Apply to Become A Trek Writer

Love backpacking + writing?

The Trek wants YOU! (insert Uncle Sam point)

The Trek Writers are those who want to share their backpacking expertise with the world.  If you’re looking to build your writing portfolio, want to be part of a tight knit and rapidly growing community, and/or love to share your insights about any and all things outdoors, the The Trek Writer role is for you.

NOTE: If you’re a current or future thru-hiker who’s looking to blog your journey on The Trek, you want to head to this page. 

You’ll get to be part of a highly knowledgeable and skilled team, lead by Appalachian Trials and Pacific Crest Trials author Zach Davis, the chance to test and review new backpacking gear, and establish yourself as a leader as part of a growing and friendly backpacking community.

The ideal candidate has a strong knowledge and enthusiasm for long-distance backpacking, hiking, being outside, growing and/or appreciating beards, and trail mix.

    Looks like you need a proofreader/copyeditor. “You’ll want to this page”. I think you meant “You’ll want to LIKE this page.” I love writing, reading, proofreading and hiking. Planning a thru-hike in 2017.

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your blog.
    You have some really great posts and I believe I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
    absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Regards!
