Subscriberthon 2018

Early birds catch many prizes: that’s right, it’s Subscriberthon 2018!

Visit Subscriberthon land, where life is peaceful and prize-filled!

Folks, welcome to our annual, week-long Subscriberthon! It’s a lovely time of year: there are so many marvellous prizes to be won! And a splendid magazine to support!

Anyone who subscribes, renews, donates or gives a gift sub over the next week goes into the draw to win some truly terrific prizes, including artworks, writing retreats, holidays, VR goggles, wine, chocolate, much technology, pet photoshoots, videogame subscriptions, poetry workshops, locally roasted coffee, wine – and mountains of books and subscriptions.

Why subscribe? Because we believe that critiquing the terrible present (not hyperbole) is how we start making a better future. Overland has spent the last 64 years imagining, challenging and debating ideas and possible futures – and, honestly, we’re just as feisty, radical, relentless, egalitarian-believing and utopian-seeking as we were in our youth!

An annual subscription – which includes four print issues, the daily online magazine, invitations to subscriber events, discounted entry to Overland competitions, and other opportunities and giveaways – is just $60 full and $45 students/unwaged.

Some more good news: if you’re already a subscriber, feel free to resubscribe – we’ll simply add another year to your existing subscription (or if you’re fully committed and flush with cash, consider a life subscription)!

Overland depends on its subscribers – it always has and it always will. So if you’re a keen Overland reader who’s not yet a subscriber, it’s time to press play on the Village People video below – and immediately after that, visit us and subscribe, because ‘together we will make the plans’.

Go west with Overland.
