Kate Siber is a freelance journalist and a correspondent for Outside magazine. For over a decade, she has covered travel, sports, science, and the environment for a wide range of magazines, newspapers and websites. Her work has appeared in National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Men’s Journal, Budget Travel, Yoga Journal, Wired, 5280, and Pacific Standard, among many others.
Siber’s work has been honored with awards from FOLIO, The North American Travel Journalists Association and the Society of American Travel Writers. But awards aren’t really the point, right? Siber is passionate about writing narratives that move readers in some way. Some of her best-loved stories include “Standing Guard,” a feature on new research suggesting that buffalo soldiers were some of the first park rangers for National Parks magazine and “Texas Makes Me Happy,” an essay on finding peace after depression on the barren roads of West Texas for National Geographic Traveler.
Siber lives in Durango, Colorado, where she enjoys backpacking, trail running, and every form of skiing there is. She is a semi-professional photographer, a volunteer for the local hospice, and the founder of the Durango Women’s Book & Cocktail Society. Find her at www.katesiber.com or @katesiber.
