    When you see a full story on Outlit, the creator or publisher of that story may want to earn from your viewing. 

    While all stories have a free preview, to read the full story you need to choose between free reading and paying a few pennies to the creator or publisher. 

    However you choose to read more, your choice (the first ever like it for digital journalism) equals real earnings for the creator. 

    Free reading shows ads around content, while on-demand content shows the story advertising-free for an instant payment between your accounts.

    To make a deposit into your account, go to your Outlit wallet page. This page also shows you what you’ve been reading. If you’re thinking about becoming a creator, this page also shows you what your writing and creative thinking could earn for you on Outlit.

    We work every day to expand publishing partnerships and onboard new individual creators and publishers of all sizes to share and host their content natively on Outlit, so that you have the first real choice in the history of the internet in how to view digital stories and reward the creator of stories.
    Our goal is to be the place for publishers around the world to share and host content natively on Outlit without exception; of course, we have a long ways to go. But our vision for the future of media includes a single marketplace where publishers compete on content quality on a level playing field.

    Outlit is one space for all the sources and voices that matter to you.

    Outlit lets you follow and read stories from:

    • Publishers, magazines, and news outlets around the world with full content hosted natively on Outlit
    • Original stories, reports, and ideas from bloggers, writers, and original journalists
    • RSS feeds of any publishers or outlets that aren’t on Outlit (add them on your own if they’re missing - we may allow others to follow RSS feeds you might add once we’ve reviewed the feed)
    • Anything you can imagine

    Outlit has original voices and sources that you can’t find anywhere else - but we know that to be your favorite place to discover and discuss content and stories that matter to you and friends, we can’t just have original stories, but any and all stories that exist out there, even if they’re clips or previews of a full story hosted elsewhere. 

    This is a radical new and powerful platform for story discovery and discussion - but the future of journalism and great stories depends on it. When creators of any size have a place to publish stories and earn alongside the biggest and smallest, a true marketplace for stories and ideas is available to the world to support content in their own way. 

    This is the future we’ve built on Outlit.
