Through December 31, after you submit through the Standard Fee portal you'll be sent to a page where you can read and download a pdf copy of our latest issue.
This is our fee submissions category for speculative fiction. All of our submissions are considered equally. So why pay a fee when you don’t have to? You’re making it possible for someone without financial means to submit. Submittable is not free to use, and even with the subscription fee we pay, we can only accept a limited number of no-fee submissions. By submitting to this category you’re supporting another writer, as well as the journal. We appreciate your donation.
Orca's Literary Speculative issue is published in July. Full guidelines here.
By submitting here you will receive our response in one month or less. If you use the free option you will not receive our response until after the submission period closes.
Unpublished fiction only: 1 short story up to 8000 words or up to 3 flash fictions of less than 1000 words each in one document. Please use a readable serif font in 12 points. A word count is appreciated.
