Become An Outdoor Writer!

People who write for outdoor magazines may have the best job on earth– how can you beat getting paid to go on trips to exotic outdoor locations?

If you’ve ever wondered about pursuing a full-time or part-time career as an outdoor writer, then This well established school is just for you.

The North American School of Outdoor Writing, directed by award-winning journalist/columnist Roger Brunt, provides a comprehensive program that teaches how to create and sell stories about the outdoors. The curriculum, which takes from 12 to 18 months to complete, includes detailed instruction on identifying markets, crafting effective query letters, getting assignments, taking appropriate support photos, gathering material, interviewing techniques, book publishing and more!

This is the only school of its kind. It is the only program tailored to creating and selling articles, columns and feature stories specifically about the outdoors. Students can earn two to three times the cost of their tuition simply by completing the writing assignments that accompany the lessons in the course.

The course teaches students where to get information on North America’s 29 outdoor writing organizations, how to contact the editors of the continent’s top paying outdoor publications, how to be updated monthly on what stories editors currently want to buy, how to get assignments to top lodges and resorts, even how to host your own television or radio show.
