Media Kit

Misadventures is a women’s adventure magazine.

We launched online in 2013 with content for the modern adventuring woman: essays, articles, how-tos, reviews and recommendations, and interviews with inspiring women. Since then, we’ve developed a dedicated readership, earned accolades and won awards, and have proven what a 21st-century magazine for women can and should be.

In November 2015, we published our first print edition of the magazine – and sold out in just one month. Soon after, we signed with Ingram Periodicals, a leading distributor of specialty and general periodicals. In 2016, Barnes & Noble identified Misadventures as an exciting new title; when our second print issue debuted in June 2016, it not only shipped directly to subscribers but was also featured in a front-shelf promotion in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide. A few months later, the Magazine Innovation Center named Misadventures one of the 30 Best Magazine Launches of 2016.

When our third issue dropped in December 2016, REI began stocking Misadventures as well, in five flagship locations across the country. Most recently, the Library Journal named Misadventures one of the 10 Best Magazine Debuts of 2016. Our fourth issue, “The Endurance Issue,” hit stores in June 2017 and continues to show bring in strong subscriber sales throughout the summer. We’ve also added carefully selected independent bookstores, outdoor retailers, and stockists to the map of where you can find Misadventures.

Our fifth issue, “The Horizons Issue,” hit the streets in November 2017 and featured climbers of color, glaciologists, conservation photographers, professional skiers, and more. At 96 pages of content, this one was a doozy. We’re now looking for advertising partners for 2018 campaigns and packages as we begin work on spring and summer content, with our sixth issue (!) due in June 2018. Give us a shout if you’ve got some ideas about how we can collaborate.

Our aim is simple: to create the best outdoors and adventure content out there. We invite you to join us on the journey.

We fill a specific gap in online publishing by delivering quality content to a long-ignored and growing audience.

Our website takes the elements that have always set Misadventures apart—our unique mission, high standards for editorial, access to talent, and loyal community of readers and contributors—and optimizes them for a digital audience.

The site is a travel and outdoors resource as well as the home of eye-opening stories and photography. We feature profiles of women pioneers, how-to guides on everything from better bug spray to camping cocktails, gift and gear recommendations, and information on adventure opportunities. Our essays and articles focus on what matters most to misadventurers: How do you motivate yourself over that mountain? What’s it like to travel solo? Which adventures should you tackle next? All this is delivered in our innovative, signature style that separates us from other outdoors magazines.
