This year, Overland turns sixty – and to celebrate that important milestone, we′re throwing a party!
Overland is celebrating its sixtieth anniversary with two major events at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival.
Overland, the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance, the Emerging Writers’ Festival and Writers Victoria are holding an open meeting on Wednesday 30 July to start to talk about what we can do – collectively – about the situation facing writers and other creative freelancers.
Overland is again seeking digital-born poetry, electronic poetry, poetry in programmable media and codeworks: a poetry that isn’t merely published online but one that is informed, shaped or built by the culture and technology of the programmable machine and the network.
The competition aims to discover the finest in original short fiction by new writers across Australia and New Zealand. With a $6000 first prize and two runner-up prizes of $1000, the award is the most lucrative of its kind in both countries. All three winning stories will also be published in Overland magazine.
Welcome to the Overland Story Wine Prize. The competition aims to discover the finest in original short fiction under a thousand words. The winning story will receive a $3000 first prize and will be published on the label of a Story Wines shiraz, as well as in Overland. Two runners-up will each receive $500.
