Avalon Travel is seeking a writer to write and update the Washington portion of a brand-new guidebook to the top hiking trails in Pacific Northwest. This is a contract position, not a full-time office job.

He or she should have firsthand experience hiking these trails. Previous professional outdoor writing experience, especially about hiking in Washington and/or the Pacific Northwest, is preferred.
AT writers are compensated with an advance and royalty. This guidebook will be in the Moon Outdoors format, and the writer selected to be the guidebook author will be responsible for updating the book for future editions.
Interested applicants should submit a resume, a cover letter, and up to five relevant clips. In the cover letter, explain why you are the best person to write the Washington portion of Moon Pacific Northwest Hiking.
