We are not able to pay our contributors at this time but hope to do so in the future.
However, we do hold exclusive competitions and have special issues where contributors are paid for their pieces.
We respect that some of our writers may not wish to share their works under their own names. In this case, we welcome you to submit your work under a pen name.
Outcast takes the security and privacy of our writers very seriously.
