Additionally, the journal showcases original works of art in full colour.

Landfall is published twice annually, in May and November by the Otago University Press. As of 2006, it consists of a paperback publication of about 200 pages, selling for about NZ$29.95. A website version of the journal publishes new literary reviews monthly.
