ActionHub.com is an online publication focused on entertaining, educating, and informing dedicated outdoor enthusiasts, with a particular focus on those interested in snow, water, and mountain and trail activities. Our most engaging content, which consists of news, feature stories, how-to guides, opinion pieces, and product reviews, is distributed through a daily email Newswire to our readers and media professionals.
News items are typically assigned to and generated by our in-house team of writers, but we are open to publishing reporting on timely, engaging topics from outside contributors. These articles should be 300-700 words and accompanied by at least one image produced by the author or for which the author has explicit permission to use in association with their content.
Feature stories should cover a given topic, experience, personality, or event in-depth in an accessible way. These feature articles should be 750-1,500 words long and accompanied by two to three images produced by the author or for which the author has explicit permission to use in association with their content.

How-to or instructional guides are also published on a daily basis and contributions from new writers are welcome. These guides should be focused on a single topic (kayaking, trail running, rock climbing, etc.) and improving a reader’s ability with regard to that topic. These articles should be 500-1,000 words long and be accompanied by two to three images produced by the author or for which the author has explicit permission to use in association with their content.
