EXPERIENCED IN OUTDOOR
Paid writing opportunity! Do you have a strong opinion about a hotly debated issue in the outdoor industry? Feel like you can back it up in a short, well-reasoned essay? We’re currently accepting pitches for the “Unfiltered” department in the next print issue of Outside Business Journal. Think of the section as a conversation starter, a debate-generation machine; the best pitches deal with difficult subject matter and give voice to ideas that often go unsaid.
Past topics have included the need for the industry to be more inclusive of sober people, the fact that the customer is NOT always right, and how the industry is still behind on diversity and inclusion practices. The assignment pays $300 for 500 words and the deadline is early November. Please send all pitches with the subject line “Unfiltered Pitch.” Please do not send complete essays.
