    Great Walks is looking for writers!

Great Walks is looking for writers and there are plenty of opportunities for you to contribute to your favourite outdoor magazine.

Here's what we're looking for:

The Your Way section is all about your travel stories. We’re looking for funny/interesting anecdotes about anywhere you've gone for a bushwalk. What we need: 450-word story plus 3-4 high quality photos. We print two stories per issue and if we feature your story you'll take home a Jack Wolfskin jacket worth $399!

The Picture Perfect section is all about showcasing your photos. Send us your best bushwalking snaps plus a 50-word caption and we'll try to feature it in the mag. The person with the winning photo in each issue takes home a pair of Leki walking poles worth $210.

Pitch us a story on a great Day Walk you've gone on anywhere in Australia. Tell us where the walk is and what's so special about it. If we like it we'll commission you to write a 400-word story and we'll pay you $150.

And finally we have a section called Who I Walk With where two hiking buddies talk about each other - couples, mates, girlfriends, mums and daughters etc. What we need is for each person to write 250 words about the other person - how they met, why they're such good company in the wilderness, where they've walked together, something funny about them. We'll also need a photo of the two of you on a bushwalk. The winning stories get a guidebook.

So what are you waiting for. Get writing! Email all correspondence to editor@greatwalks.com.au
