Overland Literary Journal



Excited to announce that I, along with the uber fabulous Craig Bolland will be guest editors for the next Overland Literary Journal fiction edition. ‘The idea of women’ is the theme and we are looking for fiction that explores – broadly – how women are experienced as ideas rather than realities. Women as fantastic beasts. Women as projections. Women not as they actually are, but as they are imagined and fantasised about; as they are limited and defined by, or viewed through, ideas of femininity – from the empowered to the absurd. Submission details are in the link. Get onto it! Go to the submission page here.
