Contributor Spotlight – Peter N. Jones

We are hugely grateful to the contributors that help us make each edition of the magazine. Without their imagination and generosity LtW wouldn’t exist. Our thanks go out to the writers, but also to the illustrators who create the beautiful images that accompany our stories.

We spoke to Peter N. Jones, a MUT (mountain-ultra-trail) runner living in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, whose work was featured in issue #4 of the magazine. He told us the story behind his piece and gave us an insight into what fuels him to run.

LTW: Why do you run?
PNJ: To get outside, explore, and calm my mind.

LTW: What’s special about your work?
PNJ: My work stems from a combination of academic and journalistic writing, giving a quality of intimate portrayals coupled with clear facts and deep backgrounds.

LTW: Tell us about your work that we published in Like the Wind.
PNJ: It was a story on the Sand Creek Massacre and the annual healing run that the Native people hold to celebrate their ancestors.

LTW: What would your ultimate adventure be?
PNJ: Anything involving mountains in foreign countries.
