Avalon Travel is seeking a professional writer to author a new guidebook to the Appalachian Trail and the towns and regions that surround it. This is a contract position, not a full-time office job.
The writer should have experience hiking the Appalachian Trail, and should live near the trail and be familiar with the nearby cities, towns, and regional attractions. The writer should also be able to provide strategic planning advice for travelers, and should have previous experience writing about the Appalachian Trail.
Avalon writers are compensated with an advance and royalty. This guidebook will be in the Moon Handbooks format, and the writer selected to be the guidebook author will be responsible for updating the book every two to three years.
