Outside is an American magazine focused on the outdoors. The first issue debuted in September 1977 with its mission statement declaring that the publication was "dedicated to covering the people, sports and activities, politics, art, literature, and (especially) hardware of the outdoors..."
Its founders were Jann Wenner (the first editor in chief), William Randolph Hearst III (its first managing editor), and Jack Ford (an assistant to founding publisher Donald Welsh and a son of former U.S. President Gerald Ford). Wenner sold the magazine to current owner Lawrence J. Burke two years later.
Outside is known as the magazine that launched the career of Jon Krakauer, Sebastian Junger, and numerous other successful freelance travel and adventure writers. Though the magazine has tilted toward a more commercial aesthetic in recent years, it is notable for recruiting leading figures from the literary world for freelance assignments. Other highly regarded writers whose work has frequently appeared in Outside include Bob Shacochis, E. Annie Proulx, Daniel Coyle, Bruce Barcott, and Tim Cahill as well as award-winning naturalist and author David Quammen. Songwriter David Berkeley also worked for Outside. Christopher Keyes is the current editor.
