Write Your Own Guide Book

Can you write a guide book? Well, if you can, there's a good chance you could be published. Cicerone are looking for guidebooks about popular and not-so-popular places. This is what they've said on their prospective author page:

Write your own guide book


We are always looking to develop new guides to the best walking, trekking, mountaineering and cycling regions of the world, and to keep our existing guides up to date.

There are three questions to think through if you are contemplating writing a guide.

Firstly, the region, area and activity involved. What is it about the region that you love and enjoy so much? If it is not a well-known and popular area, is it worth visiting? What makes it so good for that particular activity?

Secondly, who is the guide for? Is there a need for it? If it is a new area, is it great walking, trekking or mountaineering? If it is a well-known area, does the planned guide add something that existing books do not?

Thirdly, are you equipped to write this guide? Are you organised, do you write well, love photography and can you bring the whole project together? Is the area one you love and know intimately? Are you capable of being the best possible author for this guide?

If your answers to these questions are positive, then please do get in touch.

See Cicerone's prospective author page for submission guidelines.

Along with this, I've also worked hard to update my writing opportunities page to include something for everyone - even creative non-writers looking to make some extra cash. If this page has helped you please share it on your social networking sites. Thank you.

Thanks Anne for the idea. Maybe I will write a guide book for Sedona. I will research what visitors may be looking for.
