Do you have a favourite route, activity or place that you’d like to share with other lovers of the British outdoors?
We are always looking for more inspirational ideas, so if there is something you would like to write about we can publish it on #GetOutside for the world to read.
Here’s the quick guidelines:
There are a couple of different formats.
Standard posts can be on any topic and are the most flexible format. We generally ask for a minimum of around 800 words, but with no maximum. The article can be on a single subject, a series of related sections, list-style or even an infographic. They include a small bio and a photo of the author.
Adventure posts are based around a specific route. As well as a description of the route and some photos to illustrate it, we need either a copy of the route; a shared route on OS Maps, a GPX file or an accurate route drawn on one a paper map. We also ask for additional details such as difficulty and access to parking. It will include a small bio and a photo of the author.
An image is worth a thousand words, so we always like to use some great images to accompany the writing. We can often find images from our existing library, but we prefer to use ones from the authors.
If you have an idea for something you would like to write about, please get in touch at GetOutside@os.uk.
Even if we have already covered the topic, between us we can come up with something new and interesting!
