Published 5 November 20159 November 2015 · Events / Announcement Subscriberthon Day Two: For emerging writers and policy wonks Editorial team At Overland, we believe in the democratisation of politics and culture. We believe that the loudest voices shouldn’t be those with the most money or the strongest corporate support. We believe that alternative media and voices are crucial to keeping art, culture, and politics accessible, innovative and accountable. Part of that mandate is developing a strong culture of support for emerging writers. At Overland, we accept pitches, articles, fiction and poetry from writers at all stages of their careers, all year round. We seek out new contributors, and we work with emerging writers to help them grow in confidence, to engage in topical debates and to have their voices heard on issues that matter to all of us. We also run a series of exciting and prestigious literary prizes for new and emerging writers throughout the year, including: The Overland Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize worth $5000 – open now! The Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize for New and Emerging Poets worth $9000 – open now! The Nakata Brophy Short Fiction and Poetry Prize for Young Indigenous Writers worth $5000 (opens 1 December) The Story Wine Prize worth $5000 (opens in May 2016) The Overland NUW Fair Australia Prize worth $20,000 The Overland Victoria University Short Story Prize for New and Emerging Writers worth $8000 Help keep Overland an independent, democratic and exciting space for writers from all walks of life: take out a subscription today.
