The next pitch window opens July 1. We are not accepting any text submissions at this time.

But, we have a new pitch window coming soon! Next summer’s issue of Orion will explore the ecology of fairy tales. Send us pitches (no more than a page or two) for feature-length stories you’d like to write about the environmental origins and legacies of myths, folktales, and trickster tales. This submission period will open from July 1-15, and a link to Submittable will appear here ahead of time.

Thank you for your interest in sharing your work with Orion.

Please write to with any lingering questions.


We are not accepting visual submissions at this time. 

We do not accept unsolicited poetry submissions.
