New fiction opportunity: get write to it!

Overland is seeking fiction from new and emerging writers for a special online edition to be guest edited by writer and Overland fiction reader, Oliver Driscoll.

For this special edition, ‘new and emerging’ describes a writer who has not yet published a book of stories or novel with commercial distribution.

Online contributors for this edition will be paid $100 per story. Submissions close midnight, Monday 10 March. The special autumn issue will be available online in mid-April.

Submit your story under Fiction – Online on our submissions page, or read one of last year’s special issues: summer fiction edited by SJ Finn or the winter fiction edited by Emily Laidlaw.


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