Subscriberthon 2017

Final day to show Overland some love

This is it – one final appeal to you, dear reader, to put your spare $$ where your love is and take out a subscription sometime in the next few hours. In return, you’ll go into the prize draw for all our mind-blowing prizes.

What does a subscription to Overland get you (in addition to possibly many fantastic prizes)?

Our standard sub ($60 full, $45 unwaged) will save you at least 25% on the cover price, and you’ll get 12 months of superb and provocative literary writing – that’s four print issues delivered straight to your door and the daily online magazine at – as well as invitations to subscriber events, other opportunities and giveaways, and a very good feeling about yourself, and the future of literary culture.

Why subscribe?

Overland is not a publication that panders. We are vocal and necessary and argumentative. We’ll make you think, we’ll challenge you, we’ll move you – and in our pages you’ll read things you disagree with. As one subscriber wrote to us just yesterday, ‘Every now and then I want to throw Overland across the room – which I consider a brilliant thing.’

Which reminds us of something Christos Tsiolkas said: ‘Overland reminds me that some of the best Australian writing – fiction and nonfiction – emerges from the history and struggle of ideas. Issue after issue, at its best, I am reminded that such questioning and probing is vigorous and exciting – that even when I am arguing with a contributor, I am engaged in a rigorous, exciting conversation.’

Overland: writing you love and writing you hate.

Today is your last chance to win prizes by committing to a magazine that believes another world, a better world, is possible.

So friends, declare your love not in words, but in subscriptions.
