out of the box.
out of the ordinary.
out of this world.

est. Sept. 2020


Welcome to Outlander. We are a digital zine highlighting the awkward, the eccentric, and the weirdly beautiful.

“Love” from Bensound

Knock, knock…

it’s i05: KILLJOY!

ABOUT THE THEME
Provoke us. String us along. Imagine that we’re your eyes and ears for this expression of anger. Nourish that rage, cradle it like you would a flame, because once your pen or pencil touches the page, we want all of this negativity gone from your system. Flush it away until the wild pulse of your heart is all that’s left, so that the only remainder is the inebriating joy that comes with your artistic expression. Because YOU did this. You took your hate and your anger and you turned it into something candid and horrible and beautiful.

Fists against the table, angry tears spilled on pillowcases, frantic messages read without response. Revisit those moments of anger and leave it all on the table.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
Prose, poetry, personal essays, digital/traditional art, and photography.

RULES
We sort of hate rules (rulebreaking is kind of what we stand for), but we do have submission guidelines in place to make sure that we’re able to accommodate and properly review your piece!
