In contrast to other core concepts of emancipation such as freedom or equality, solidarity is quite difficult to grasp. This is because it is even more clearly a relationship, a doing, one difficult to fix down by an external standard. Solidarity happens between us. This is exactly what makes it so attractive: it creates connections.
1. Our fiction and poetry readers are humans. And in fact, we’re looking for more (to help us read through submissions and select the work that Overland goes on to publish. Interested? Read on.)
Overland is looking to expand its team of fiction and poetry readers, and to start a team of nonfiction readers. These volunteer positions only require a time commitment of a few hours per month.
Every year, Overland publishes several online editions showcasing fiction by new and emerging writers, or specially curated themed fiction editions. An opportunity exists for an emerging editor to work on one of these online fiction editions, to be published in April or May 2019.
It’s never been an easy choice to be a writer, and it’s never easy to get published. But we try strive to make Overland a series of spaces where you can have a voice – in our print magazine, our daily only magazine, our special fiction and poetry editions (which publish primarily emerging writers, and are produced by emerging editors), our residencies for under-represented writers, our literary competitions and countless other opportunities.
