OUT/CAST is a journal of queer Midwestern fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. That said, we’ll also take any writing from anyone, as long as the work and its author respect our vision.

Please read our full submission guidelines here before submitting.


  • Send up to three photos, digital art, etc. Size-wise, if it'll look good on our site, it's probably fine. JPG, PNG, GIF only.
  • Include the title of each work in its corresponding file name.
  • Include the title, medium, and date of creation for each work in a separate .doc/.docx/.pdf file, as well as an optional artist’s statement (especially if you feel that your work requires context for the editors or the journal’s audience to understand it – we may ask to publish the statement).
  • Do not include any identifying information anywhere in the document, the file name, or the Submittable title.
