The Outline

IT’S NOT FOR EVERYONE, IT’S FOR YOU.

The Outline is a new kind of publication for a new kind of human. We made this thing because we believe that the right story told in the right way can change someone's life. But telling the right stories for right now — and telling them in a way that's meaningful and modern — isn't going to happen by itself. We have to make it happen.

Our foundational reason for building The Outline is that we're really excited about putting something into the world that wasn't there before. Our coverage focuses on three topics that are increasingly converging in strange and important ways: power (who has it, who wants it, and what do they do when they get it?), culture (the way we live and communicate), and the future (where we’re going next).

We’re not telling any of these stories just because there’s space to fill in your day. We’re telling them because we think there's a whole other narrative happening in the world that's unseen, underreported, or dismissed altogether.

If we have a central goal, it's to feed your curiosity and intelligence with as much respect and honesty as possible. No games, just something fucking interesting every day.

If you really want to see what we’re about, go and explore our stories. And remember: getting lost can be good.
