About The Wild Writer

What Makes Me The Wild Writer?

I have always loved the outdoors, and I have always loved stories. Over time and with added responsibilities sometimes my sense of adventure was pushed to the side, but it was always simmering under the surface. Through camping, trail running, travel, and just knowing that life is better outside my front door, that spirit has reemerged. I hope to use Writer Gone Wild to share it.

My name is Jeff Shields, and I call Peterborough Ontario home base. From there I have a springboard to a variety of outdoors activities to keep me busy and inspired. In addition to having two amazing sons, I am also a high school teacher (History, Indigenous Studies, Sociology, Outdoor Education) and outdoor lifestyle freelance writer.

As an outdoor lifestyle freelance writer I hope to fully recapture that sense of adventure and ultimately share it with my clients. Although I’m happy and able to write about any topic you require, I specialize in writing about outdoor adventure, lifestyle, gear and experience.

If your business includes: running, camping, hiking, adventure tourism, or any other outdoor need, please get in touch and we can get started. That said, I am more than willing to learn and write about any other topic that can help advertise you, your business, and your product. From the page to the trail, adventure is everywhere.

Time to get wild.
