Submission guidelines

For each issue we present a theme to be tackled, in any genre, tone or style you prefer. As of 2015 we publish 4 – 5 stories per issue/theme, and all stories must be between 6 – 10 pages.

STORY SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!

Current theme:


How do I submit my/our story?

Easy! Send us a one-page pitch that briefly outlines your story and how it plays on the theme, and a line or two about yourself/yourselves. Please put the pitch in the body of the e-mail.

As of now, we do prefer stories with an artist attached. Meaning: If you’re just a writer, join hands with a good artist and submit your story idea together. You don’t have to have any artwork ready, just include a link to your portfolio so we can judge your skill/style. (Please remember that we can’t assess your sequential storytelling skills if you only direct us to pin-ups, splash pages and stand-alone illustrations.)

Note that your story, if chosen, will (likely) go through an editing process before it’s ready. We’re all in it to make Outré the best anthology out there. Naturally, each story remains the property of the creators involved, and can be used for whatever purpose after the Outré issue has been launched.

I want to illustrate a story…

Terrific! We are looking for all styles and types of artists. Please do send us a link to your portfolio with sequential samples/page samples to the e-mail address below. (We can’t assess your sequential storytelling skills if you just direct us to pin-ups, splash pages and stand-alone illustrations.)

All artwork used for/in Outré remains the property of the creative team/artist. It can be used for whatever benefit the owner(s) desires. All we ask is that the artwork is kept under lid and not shared online until the respectable Outré issue has launched.

I’m an artist and I don’t have time to illustrate a full story, but I still want to be part of this…

Great! Each issue will feature different pin-ups/stand-alone illustrations. If you have a story you can tell in a single illustration – working on one of our current themes – we encourage you to get in touch. The illustration does not have to be finished, or even planned, but we require a look at your portfolio so we can understand how the finished illustration will look. The ownership of the illustration will of course remain with the artist, but we want to keep it under wraps until the respectable Outré issue has been launched.
