There’s a discussion of the Overland-Meanjin soccer match (a clash at which Overland won a clear moral victory) in that glossy mag that comes with the Fairfax papers. Key moments: Meanjin’s Sophie Cunningham on shoes and Vulgar’s Ian Syson on ‘inner-city knobs’. Plus there’s a passing mention of my fashion sense.

Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.

  1. They are behind the times Jeff, I’ve always dug your fashion sense Jeff. I only sent in my work to Overland last year because you were wearing a really cool “Rastafari” shirt on the EWF “let’s get political” panel and I took it as a sign from Jah. Wacky but no lie.
