We are always looking for creative individuals to come aboard our website to write for us. If you have an idea that is going to contribute to what we do and engage our readers, we want to hear about it. It doesn’t need to be anything fancy, rather, a piece that gives readers a new perspective on the outdoor fitness industry.
However, writing for FS Avalanche does take some hard work. We want your pieces of work to be the best it can be, and we will always push to obtain the results both parties are looking for. Once you are accepted to our website, you will work next to an editor that will revise your work.
Writing for us is extremely rewarding. There are thousands of people out there who are going to read your work. There’s also the potential for employers, clients, and publishers to read it as well. Not only that, but this is a rewarding learning experience. You can become more familiar with your communication skills and your writing skills.
What Are We Looking For?
You can submit a rough draft, pitch, or even a partial draft attached to an outline. This will be a topic that means a lot to you and why it should matter to our readers. The more your submission is complete, the better feedback we can give to you. We will only take original content, nothing that has already been published somewhere else, including your own blogs. We also ask that you do not send us press releases or sales pitches-we do not like these. Before you submit a pitch, please make sure it:
- Contains a clear argument and contains a thesis.
- Has its own voice.
- Is written for a fitness audience.
- Is supported by factual arguments. Make sure to cite sources.
What We Will Publish
We will publish an article that is between 600-2,500 words in length, depending on what you are writing about. The average length is around 1,500 words. The articles can be casual and the often has custom illustration.
You can email us your article. We prefer a Google Doc so the editors can give you feedback right on the document. You can also send it as a plaintext file, markdown, or link to an HTML document. Do not ZIP your files.
