UKClimbing.com articles cover all aspects of climbing and mountaineering. We publish articles weekly from a variety of authors, both professional and amateur.
We welcome proposals for contributions from everyone, although we can't promise to publish everything. Please do not send us unsolicited work - in the first instance it's a pitch that we are after. Please send us:
-A one-paragraph proposal outlining your idea.
-A sample paragraph of the proposed article, a draft introduction for example.
-A brief run-down of any previous writing credentials.
-Sample photographs to accompany the writing (see below).
What about images?
We can't publish words alone. As a rule we are looking for a words-and-pictures package, with high quality images to go alongside the engaging, thoughtful text. Depending on the length of the article, we may end up publishing 10 or more images, and will generally ask for a larger selection from which to make our choice. Occasionally an author will not have enough suitable photographs, and in that case we may agree to source images elsewhere: please be up-front about this in the pitch!
-With the initial pitch please send four of your best sample images.
-All images should be numbered chronologically, with an accompanying numbered caption sheet.
