If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world might maybe need to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Paste your thoughts into the form adjacent.

Outsideleft welcomes words about the sort of pop culture that generally evades the spotlight... If that helps. On the other hand more readers are attracted to things they have heard about. Go figure.

Of course, (and we know this can make your enthusiasm wane...) we don't have anything as analog as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. We need your help.
