Consider yourself a bit of a blogger? The Meanland project is holding a competition to find two fortnightly contributors.

Overland and Meanjin are holding a competition to find two bloggers to replace the current Meanland blogger.

The winners will write fortnightly for the collaborative project and receive a one-off prize of $200. They will be paid $75 per fortnight to blog and tweet, while one runner-up will receive $100 and have their entry published online.

Meanland is focused on considering the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of the digital revolution and its impact on publishing. Issues covered already have included: the blurring between readers and writers as people are increasingly creating their own content; the cultural and political impact of unparalleled monopolies rising in the digital landscape; and the psychological consequences of reading and writing online.

To enter, choose one of the topics below and email a .doc entry to Meanjin’s Deputy Editor Zora Sanders with “Meanland blog entry” in the title.

The topics:

– Digital writing, which uses linking, video and commentary, is a return to oral storytelling traditions

– The Internet has not impacted on my reading habits in the slightest

– Speaking of paywalls…

– Creative solutions to old media problems: what will reading be like in the coming decades?

The word limit is 1000 words, and entries close 5pm on May 16.

You can email Zora at or visit the website for more details.
