A.T. Journeys is published six times a year by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. Editorial emphasis is on people, places, and events pertaining to the Appalachian Trail and related hiking, conservation, and environmental concerns.
Freelance manuscripts are welcomed and provide about 30 percent of the material in each edition. Electronic submissions (Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format, or as plain ASCII text) are preferred and should be sent to [email protected]
. Alternatively, typewritten manuscripts with double-spacing should be sent to A.T. Journeys
Editor at P.O. Box 807 Harpers Ferry, WV 25425.
Each edition contains several stand-alone photographs (including covers). Photos are of people, views, flora, and fauna on or from the A.T. People photos are most desirable, but must be “model-released,” meaning that the photographer has permission to publish a picture of an individual. Submissions should be color slides or digital photos from a 3-megapixel, or larger, camera. Payment is from $25 to $150, depending on placement; $200 for covers. Color prints are welcome, but are treated as donations and are not returned. All images should be identified as either “donation” or “permission and payment required.” Submissions should be sent to [email protected]
, or to A.T. Journeys Editor at the address above.
Original artwork is solicited by the editor, usually to accompany specific manuscripts. Queries about freestanding artwork that is exclusively oriented to the Appalachian Trail are welcome, however, particularly when accompanied by a sample copy of an artist’s work. Payment ranges from $30 to $200.
Rates and specifications will be available early in the year. In “Public Notices,” the ATC members may solicit or offer information or advertise items appropriate to the Trail community. Those ads are published free of charge to the ATC members and are not available to nonmembers. Personal-type ads (i.e. personal greetings, thanks, or solicitations for "hiking dates") are not accepted. Real-estate ads are accepted only if property is directly adjacent to the A.T. Telephone numbers are published only when critical to the ad. Public notices should be sent to [email protected]
. Please include full name and phone number for verification.
