Poetry editor: Toby Fitch.

Overland publishes emerging, politically engaged poets, printing their work alongside more established national and international progressive contemporaries. The contributors' budget varies but the minimum payment for poems published in the print journal is $100. The payment rate for poems published online may be different.

Submission note: due to the number of submissions Overland receives, we ask that poets submit no more than 3 poems per quarter. We also ask that multiple poems be submitted in a single Word document or PDF.


Overland would not exist without its subscribers. If you do not have a current subscription to Overland, use this form for submissions of poetry. Though submissions by non-subscribers will be read, those by subscribers will be prioritised. You can support Overland and become a subscriber here.
