Wanted: Writers of EpicSki Articles

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

EpicSki has some nice Articles but we could sure use some fresh material. We figure the best source of writing talent on skiing is probably already here. If any of you are interested in submitting articles for publication in our Articles section, we would be happy to receive them and will pay a fair pittance for articles we publish.

 

Please have a look at what we have in our library -- I'm sure you'll find many gaps that your articles might fill. We're looking for individual works by our resident experts on a topic of community interest. We don't want opinion pieces, essays, reviews, or trip reports -- anything that already has a place on EpicSki belongs in that place and not in the Articles. Subjective stuff does not belong here. What we want are factual articles that answer an important question that a skier might have. "How to care for Gore-Tex clothing," "Where to find the best snow on any mountain," and "Features on a pair of ski boots and how they pertain to you," are three possible article topics that occur to me at the moment. Skiers are very inquisitive people, so there's no limit to the number of objective articles we could use here. 

 

 

Payment is based on article length and visual interest -- articles with relevant photos and videos are worth more than plain text that I have to find imagery to enhance. Please don't bother to format the article before you send it to me -- I have to do it anyway when we publish it, and it'll save me having to strip out any extraneous code. 

 

Once published the articles will be locked and only its author will have access to edit an article. Each article has a comments section for the community to add their input.  

 

You can send your article(s) to me as an attachment to a PM or an email (joan@epicski.com). Please include your name and mailing address so I know where to send the check!

 

Any questions? Ask here or PM me!

Bump for the article writers.  Be sure to check the categories for articles we have, and add to the collection, or refine and correct something already there.

Just wondering on the pay.  I can get $65 for a well researched/personal knowledge, 600 word ski-snowboard-skibike article with exclusive rights for another website.  Is EpicSki coming close to that?

Article request: dummies guide / tips and techniques for packing up a ski bag for air travel, specifically the best way to fit 2 (or even 3) pairs of skis, plus poles into a bag.  It's one of those things that seems like it should be easy until you start trying to do it and thinking about baggage handlers (aka "chuckers") and protecting your equipment.

 

I guarantee this will become a popular article if it's well written, with bonus points for photos.
