Tell your expedition story with Adventure Corner


More than ever we are sharing our latest adventures with the world. This might be driven by personal pleasure, a need to repay sponsors, or simply to update friends and family.

Whether you’re walking the South West Coast Path or attempting a new route on Everest, Adventure Corner offers copywriting and update services to help tell your story accurately and on time.

Hey Ash, thanks for checking in. We’re still waiting for a window for a night up at the South Col. We had a freak electrical storm last night that wrecked a lot of Camp 2 with very strong winds. Looks like we’ll try and head up to South Col on the 14th more or less.

Jon Griffith, Mount Everest, May 2018

I currently work with leading adventurers to break news on the world’s number one adventure website Explorers Web. I’ve written for a range of outdoor publications including Outside Magazine,  Rock and Ice MagazineUK Hillwalking, UK Climbing, Active Magazine and Adventure Magazine New Zealand. I also have ten years of experience in writing, editing and publishing worldwide in academia (20 scientific papers and 1 book chapter).

The services I offer are:

⇨ Copywriting

Punchy and clear copy for your website, blog, and literature. I particularly focus on ensuring background information i.e. route, level of support etc. are clearly and faithfully reported.

⇨ From the Field Updates

Daily text and photo updates on your website and social media streams. I liaise with you directly in the field to curate the latest content for your needs. I have experience of working with climbers on Everest, skiers in the Arctic and producing my own personal content from very remote regions.

⇨ Online Tracking and Social Media Campaigns

I ‘ve partnered with leading adventure tracking service Follow My Challenge for this. FMC can provide rental GPS trackers and a real-time GPS data and mapping service which can be integrated into websites or Facebook pages.


I’m an entry-level member of The Society for Editors and Proofreaders and a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild.
