Nonfiction submissions

For the online magazine

Overland publishes a nonfiction magazine of literary, political and cultural analysis and polemic. Unsolicited contributions are welcomed. While the magazine is eclectic, the online format generally favours short, punchy and topical articles. The rate for online articles is $150. Editors: Giovanni TisoEvelyn Araluen and Jonathan Dunk.

Note: While we have tremendous respect for the form, we don’t publish personal essays or creative non-fiction in the online magazine, unless they are very consistently linked to political concerns.

For the quarterly print magazine

The print edition of Overland publishes essays, polemics and other hard-hitting articles with a strong cultural or political analysis. As a quarterly, it cannot carry news articles or other content that will date quickly. Because space in the print edition is necessarily limited, material submitted in this category must justify its inclusion on the basis of originality, style, theoretical profundity or similar basis –it must, in short, stand the test of time. Academic articles may be refereed but Overland is a generalist publication and discourages specialist or narrowly scholastic submissions. The standard payment for nonfiction print essays is $500. Editors: Evelyn Araluen and Jonathan Dunk.
