Guidelines 

Topics and philosophy

Outside is an online magazine with a goal to provide an online space, where integration, multiculturalism and diversity are supported. Therefore, we feature texts, videos and content by authors with different ethnical backgrounds. We are covering all aspects and range of topics from everyday life. We do not only write about multicultural topics. In addition, we provide true equality experience, where locals and non-locals write about similar issues and experiences.

What this practically mean is that you can submit content no matter where you are from. We prioritize content related to multicultural matters. We need you to be a person who supports and values multiculturalism, diversity and if you can show us that, we would really appreciate it.

We will also consider publishing content about matters that are not related to our main topics. If you think your content is interesting, respectful, valuable, please get in touch.

Some of the topics you might cover, but not excluding other ideas, are family, business, travel, places, interesting people, events, art, culture, feelings, fashion, lifestyle, health.
