Award-win­ning au­thor to judge Trail writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion

Trail (UK) - - BASE CAMP -

Best-sell­ing au­thor Robert Mac­far­lane (right) is to be a judge for the fi­nale of Trail’s hugely suc­cess­ful writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion, ‘The Day A Moun­tain Changed My Life’. Since the April 2018 is­sue, a sin­gle win­ner from hun­dreds of en­tries has been cho­sen ev­ery month for the best 400-word moun­tain anec­dote. We have had life-chang­ing tales of moun­tain lib­er­a­tion, sto­ries of hill-in­spired ca­reer changes, and stark ac­counts of moun­tain ac­ci­dents, with each monthly win­ning en­try claim­ing a year’s mem­ber­ship to the John Muir Trust and £100 to spend on Moun­tain Equip­ment kit.

We are now twothirds of the way through the year-long com­pe­ti­tion, and just four rounds re­main be­fore an over­all win­ner is se­lected by a panel of es­teemed judges, in­clud­ing Mac­far­lane. The grand prize for the au­thor of the best story of the year in­cludes a day of be­spoke ad­ven­ture on a John Muir Trust-man­aged moun­tain, ac­com­pa­nied by an ex­pert Moun­tain Equip­ment guide, plus the op­por­tu­nity to write a full-length fea­ture ar­ti­cle for Trail.
