Orca seeks work for literary-speculative issue

web site

Deadline: June 1, 2020

Please note: This is our no-fee submission portal. We can accept 100 no-fee submissions per month. We ask those who can afford to do so to consider submitting through the fee-based portal, so that others for whom a fee is a financial hardship can submit for free.

Orca's Literary Speculative issue is published in July. Full guidelines here.

By submitting here you will not receive our response until after the submission period closes. If you use the pay option you will receive our response in one month or less.

Unpublished fiction only: Up to 3 flash fictions of less than 1000 words each in one document, or 1 short story up to 8000 words. Please use a readable serif font in 12 points. Double space. Indent paragraphs. Minimum one inch margins. Author name and email, and a word count on the top of the first page. Start the story about halfway down the first page, with the title and byline centered above it. Title and page numbers on subsequent pages in the header.

Payment for publication in Orca is $25, plus one contributor’s copy. We are working to increase the monetary amount. We pay only via PayPal or Zelle, so you have to have an account. We cannot send checks (since our bank account didn’t come with any). If you don’t have a PayPal or Zelle account we can send you extra copies of the journal.
