197-front-cover-webHow many ways can you absorb Overland goodness? Why, let’s count them!

1. If you are a subscriber, you would have received (or be just about to receive) Overland 197, with Guy Rundle on Kevin Rudd, Fiona Capp on Judith Wright, Anwyn Crawford on Nick Cave, Sophie Cunningham on the world beneath Melbourne and much, much more.

2. If you are in Melbourne this Sunday, you can attend the Overland/Meanjin end-of-year event and lawn bowls challenge.

3. Wherever you are, you can join in the inaugural Overland subscriberthon, which kicks off on 1 December.

4. Next year, you can participate in the ‘Meanland’ collaboration with Meanjin, which begins, in spectacular fashion, with this event at the newly christened Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas in Melbourne before moving to other cities across Australia. More on this soon.

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