Opportunities for writers

We want writers with ideas.

Whether you’re a budding polemicist, a cultural critic, a book nerd, or an activist with an idea for a campaign under an Abbott government, submit your work for publication online at Overland. We’re after debates, essays, analyses, perspectives and reviews that interrogate the cultural and political world in which we live.

We like pieces that begin dialogues and engage with current debates – and books and films and issues. We appreciate pieces that challenge and provoke, as well as pieces that make us laugh. Furthermore, Overland is committed to paying writers: we pay online contributors $50 an article (and occasionally more for longer articles).

So if you’re a writer, new or established, and you’ve got a piece you think would work for us online or in print, visit our submissions page.

Finally, Overland depends on its subscribers. If you enjoy what you read at Overland, you can take out a year’s subscription for $60 ($45 conc.), which means we’ll continue to produce four issues a year, an online publication daily, and offer giveaways, prizes and events throughout the year.

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

If you like this piece, or support Overland’s work in general, please subscribe or donate.
