Subscriberthon Day Two: For emerging writers and policy wonks

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 Overlandwe 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:

Help keep Overland an independent, democratic and exciting space for writers from all walks of life: take out a subscription today.

Subscriberthon FAQ

I want to join in but my subscription isn’t due for renewal yet! 
That’s okay – if you buy a subscription during Subscriberthon we’ll extend your current subscription by four issues, and you’ll go in the running to win!

Last year during Subscriberthon, I opted for automatic renewal. Am I still eligible for prizes this year?
Yes! Once your auto-renewal has gone through, we’ll put you into the prize pool for the corresponding Subscriberthon day. So if you subscribed on Day Two of Subscriberthon in 2014, you’ll go into the prize draw on Day Two in 2015. 

Can I buy a subscription for my friend?
What a lovely thing to do. Of course you can – just enter their details in the shipping section. Your friend will get four issues of Overland delivered to their door and go into the running to win one of our excellent prizes.

Oh no! I subscribed last week! Have I missed out on all the Subscriberthon fun?
Absolutely not! If you subscribed on or after 22 October 2015 you’ll still go into the prize draw for the Major Prizes and the Regional Prizes. 

Can I just make a donation?
You can indeed! Head over to our Donations page. If you donate during Subscriberthon you’ll be eligible for the prize draw, too.
