Outside publishes stories about adventure sports, gear, travel, fitness, health, culture, and the environment. We’re always on the lookout for reporting, essays, service pieces, and cultural criticism focused on the outdoor world. Because outdoor adventure writing has historically highlighted predominantly white male voices and subjects, we are particularly interested in women, BIPOC, LGBT+, and other diverse voices and subjects. Find more information here about the stories we’re looking for and how to pitch them.
In 1978, a letter in Outside’s first issue stated that the magazine was “dedicated to covering the people, activities, politics, art, and literature of the outdoors.” Today, that editorial goal remains the same—if anything, it’s expanded as we continue to redefine what it means to be an outdoor recreationist. With in-depth narrative storytelling, profiles, video, and authoritative service, we explore the intersection between our lives and the natural world. Our writers bring their unique expertise, irreverence, and humor to the biggest stories, all told through an outdoor lens in print and on the web. We hope you find inspiration here, then take that wonder outside.
