In 2016, Emily Woodhouse started blogging about her own adventures and offering guest posts to other women in adventure and outdoor sport. The more guest posts she featured and the more she got involved with the community, something became very clear. There are LOADS of women and girls who are already involved in adventure, in sport, getting outdoors and doing amazing things there. They were jumping up for a platform to share on.
So she did something crazy. She started a magazine, in print, with no experience of ever doing something like that before. Why print? Because there's nothing so powerful as holding the words in your hand. The online world is full of noise. A physical magazine commands attention... and is much easier to leave in cafes, climbing centres and hostels for people to stumble across.
Intrepid Magazine has been up and running since January 2018 and people love it. We're still growing, still making the magazine better with every issue. To support us, please hit that Shop button and subscribe.
Emily loves mountaineering, adventure, search and rescue, camping, cycling, cycle touring… oh and knitting. She loves inspiring others to do the things they’ve secretly always wanted to, but felt like they couldn’t. Don’t be scared. Show the world what you’ve got.
Sarah is a climber and you can usually find her hanging off a rope somewhere in Yorkshire. She spends most of her spare time volunteering for various groups and has boundless enthusiasm for anything to do with the outdoors.
