ALL OUTCAST PRESS SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED
Outcast Press publishes prose that explores raw, dark, honest, and shocking themes. Thus, we strive to deliver work that pushes boundaries with unpredictability. No trigger warnings or the like accepted.
We greatly prefer previously unpublished work.
When submissions re-open, perhaps in spring 2024 for Slut Vomit: Vol. II, we will be looking for transgressive or dirty realist stories. This means uncensored works with a flair for language/slang and an original alienated main character.

When the time comes, you may pitch us your novel idea by email or Twitter DM. If interested, we will request a synopsis and the first three chapters. Ideal word length is between 60,000-70,000 words, about 200-250 6x9" single-spaced pages.

Before submitting, we ask that you peruse our works to familiarize yourself with the themes and styles of writing we cherish. If you think we’d be a good home for your words, please submit:
