Women’s Work, Overland’s anthology of new Australian stories from emerging women writers, was launched on International Women’s Day 2012. Edited by Clare Strahan, the book was inspired by the debate about the under-representation of women in writing and publishing. With a foreword by Margo Lanagan, these stirring stories by Cheryl Adam, Helen Addison-Smith, Anne Hotta, Susie Greenhill and Georgina Luck range across the globe, as they explore our contemporary relationship with the natural world, with gender, privilege and loneliness, and ask what it means to be human in a rapidly changing world.
Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
