Follow Up: Wend Magazine

wend.jpginformative post about Wend at the beginning of the year. Since it just launched and we both like the magazine’s concept, I decided to do a follow up post.

Wend Magazine is an adventure travel magazine with a West coast focus. What does wend mean? To go one’s own way. And they’re way is:

to provide a forum in which the convergence of sport, style and creativity blend in a seamless fashion. Wend is an amalgamation of visual, mental and physical inspiration, built to emanate the style and identity of the ever-growing population of the urban-minded adventurer. Wend’s content is informative, thought provoking, and above all, inspiring.




Sounds exciting, right? The premiere issue features articles about a bike ride through Northern British Columbia, a road trip featuring a dog, and a kayaking trip.

While researching Wend further, I discovered they’re looking for writers to contribute first hand experiences — with an adventure and outdoor focus — on the Pacific Northwest. Editorial departments include:

Go: outdoor related news. 500 words
Current: Showcases the latest trends in outdoor sports. 1,000-2,000 words
Wanderlust: Feature length outdoor tales. 2,500 + words
Road Trip: Adventure seeking road trips. Where, when, and how
Survival Kit: Adventure worthy gear and apparel

Ian Marshall is the editor of this quarterly magazine based in Portland, Oregon. Rates are 20 cents a word, plus a little more if you contribute photos. For more information about writing for Wend, click here. Submit a query to
