A Bit About Me

A little about my writing:

Hilary Eiger trainI’m a contributing editor at Adventure Journal, and you can see a few of my pieces for AJ and other magazines, web sites and podcasts here. In my past life I was a magazine editor—health and beauty editor, actually. Now I’m relishing in the freelance life, focusing on outdoor writing for all sorts of publications like Mountain Flyer Magazine, Sidetracked Magazine Online, Colorado Life Magazine and Climbing Magazine. My favorite stories to write—and read—are the tales of our outdoor experiences and how they change us.

As co-manager of the Verticulture blog for Outdoor Research, I work with a team of sponsored athletes to assign, edit and write blog posts about climbing, paddling, backpacking and snow sports.

I also blog for other companies and nonprofits like REI, Urban Outfitters’ outdoors concept Without Walls, Therm-a-Rest, MSR, Raleigh Bicycles, Brooks-Range Mountaineering, Larabar, Adventure Film School and People For Bikes.

Sometimes I also write marketing copy. Like OR’s ongoing women’s e-mail campaign and copy for OR’s spring 2015 catalog and their 2016 workbook.

 

And a few odd facts about me:

I worked a summer season at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. And loved it, of course.
I lived in a van for a year and a half, traveling around the American West. I loved that, too.
And I’m a sucker for vegetarian hot dogs.
