Outdoor Writers & Photographers Guild

14th October This last weekend we gathered at the Malham Tarn FSC Centre for our annual Big Event – a rare opportunity for fellow professional writers in the great outdoors to meet. Saturday morning we set off under the guidance of Colin Speakman (right) to board a DalesBus towards Langcliffe from where we returned over a typical Yorkshire Dales limestone plateau landscape in time for the later afternoon AGM.

In the group shot are l-r: Jan and Dennis Kelsall (guide authors), Sue Viccars (Dartmoor Magazine editor) Martin Andrew (author), Gill Jenkinson, Kevin Freeborn (Pathfinder guides editor), Andrew Jenkinson (Scenesetters author), Vivenne Crow (multiple guides), Chris Howes (Descent editor), Andrew McCloy (chair of Peak District National Park Authority, with multiple walking guides to his name including the England Coast Path), Jacquetta Megarry (Rucksack Readers owner), Judith Howes and Colin Speakman (founder of the Dales Society, Dales Way and staunch transport campaigner). There were a comparable number of members engaged in other activities (out of shot) a star-studded membership of great writers and photographers – we are always looking for new professional members who’s passion is to interpret and share the wonders of the great outdoors across the globe.
