Rock and Ice is launching a new series of articles called 360: A Critical Look at Climbing and Culture.

This series will examine the most pressing issues in the culture of climbing today. While all topics, big and small, are on the table, we intend for the initial articles (or photo essays) to center around how the dynamics of race, equality, social justice, and LGBTQIA+ studies intersect with the climbing world.

We seek qualified and passionate writers to explore topics close to their hearts. We don’t want to define the topics beforehand. Please define those topics for us with your submissions.

Published articles will appear online (occasionally in print) on a special section of our website and will receive the full support of all of our platforms. Writers will be paid after publication (website content is normally unpaid).

Please submit ideas, queries and pitches to Francis Sanzaro at submissions@bigstonepub.com
