Hope you didn’t have any plans this summer, because we need you to clear your schedule for our first special fiction edition of 2020.
About special edition
Overland is seeking fiction submissions for a special online fiction edition edited by Allan Drew. We are looking for stories with urgency, a clear reason for being told – stories that adhere to that idea that the impulse behind all fiction is “hey, you gotta hear this”. Allan is especially interested in stories where the characters are put under pressure in some way, and we get the chance to see what they’re made of.
About the guest editor
Allan Drew teaches Creative Writing and Communications at Massey University. You can find him online at www.allan-drew.com.
Submissions close 31 January 2020. The special issue will be available online in March.
Stories can run from flash fiction to longer short stories, but the maximum word length for submissions is 4000 words. Kindly note: writers may submit no more than two stories for consideration for this special issue.
