Published 20 November 201721 November 2017 · Events / Subscriberthon 2017 / Announcement Subscriberthon Day Four: Not a note wrong Editorial team In Overland you find ideas unpopular with the political classes, and stances not taken in other publications. Since 1954, we have been a place where the political and literary left meet because politics does not end where a book begins. In a suffocative political climate, where far-right positions are the staple of the political discourse, independent space for progressive opinion – for alternative perspectives and possibilities – is more important than ever.
