Avalon Travel is seeking an author to write and update Moon New England Hiking, a brand-new guidebook to the top hiking trails in New England. This is a contract position, not a full-time office job.
The writer should live in New England, must be passionate about hiking and the outdoors, and must be very knowledgeable about hiking and the trails within the region.

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 Moon New England Hiking. Please include “Moon New England Hiking” in the subject line of your message.
