In the past few years, in a conservative climate and with the media everywhere in crisis, Overland has massively expanded its operations. We’re publishing more than ever before, in print and online; updating the website daily; running the biggest and most prestigious prizes for emerging writers in Australia; and hosting events all around the country.
But we still depend on the support of our community.
That’s what Subscriberthon is all about.
It’s a way to encourage those who read the articles, circulate the links, comment on the blog or just generally appreciate Overland to become a financial supporter: taking out a new subscription, renewing an old one or giving a donation.
Anyone who subscribes (or renews or donates more than $40) between 7 and 14 November becomes eligible for a huge array of products and services: ereaders, wine, theatre and film tickets, music packs, T-shirts, food and books and much, much more. Subscriberthon has run for several years – and we’ve never had as many prizes as we do now, nor as much support from a huge list of Friends of Overland.
Subscriberthon starts next week (on 7 November, running through to 14 November). Anything you can do before then to get the word out – on Facebook, on Twitter, on email or even in the real worlds – would be greatly appreciated.
Watch this spot for regular updates.
