Frequently Asked Questions

What should I write about?

To get a sense for the type of work we publish, read our site! We like practical, actionable advice, posts that will help entrepreneurs start, grow, and scales their businesses. Please write in the “you” voice as much as possible, then support your advice with personal experience or stories.

Do you pay?

When you contribute to Outlier Magazine, you’ll get a byline and bio that includes a link or two to whatever you’d like to promote — your website, Twitter feed, latest ebook, etc. We’ll also share your post in our newsletter, and on Twitter and Facebook, to help you reach as many readers as possible.

How long should my posts be?

Aim for 400-900 words.

Should I pitch you my idea before writing the post?

If you’d like to, go ahead. But we’re happy to consider a draft as well.

Should I include links within the piece?

Yes. Please include links that will be helpful and relevant for the reader – they can be to appropriate posts on your site or on any other news site or blog. 

Should I write a headline?

That’d be great! We reserve the right to tweak it for SEO, style or just to make it more attention-grabbing. But if you want to suggest one, that makes our job easier.

Will you edit my post?

We’ll edit for content and clarity, doing our best to preserve your voice. 

What should I do after I submit my post?
