Chuck Schwerin, Editor
Adirondack PEEKS is the biannual magazine of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers, Inc. The magazine includes information on club-sponsored events and service projects, articles about the history and natural environment of the High Peaks area, and stories about hiking adventures in the Adirondacks and beyond.
The first issue was produced in the winter of 1963-64 as a 16-page mimeographed newsletter. From that simple beginning PEEKS has evolved into a 40-plus page full color magazine. While the technical production quality of the publication has improved over the years, one thing hasn’t changed: The quality of the offering is dependent upon content which comes from you, the members and aspiring members.
We encourage you to submit stories about your hiking adventures to PEEKS. Send us an article about a particularly memorable trip, or an essay or poem that was inspired by the mountains or your quest to become a 46er. Or, how about sending us a recipe for your favorite trail food?
Please also consider sending PEEKS your photos, whether or not you have an article to go along with them. Here are some guidelines for article and photo submissions:
Suggested length: 1,500 – 2,500 words. Please expect that some editing may occur. Submission may be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail: Chuck Schwerin, 97 Court St., Apt 2, Binghamton, NY 13901.
Please send photos if you have them, (including the name of the person who took each photo so proper credit can be given) at the highest resolution possible for best results in the finished product. JPEGS and TIFF formats are preferred. If the size of the files exceeds what your email server will permit, consider sharing them with us via a site like Dropbox or One Drive. Inviting Chuck Schwerin to your site will make it easier for you to transmit and easier for us to keep them organized.
