There are many ways you can donate to On Spec Magazine and help us continue providing a voice for speculative short-fiction in Canada. While we can’t issue you a tax receipt, any donation over $24 Cdn will receive a one-year subscription to On Spec Magazine as our thank-you.

You might find it interesting to see how your money gets put to good use. Below are some estimated costs we incur with each issue.

  • $50 pays for a poem or interior illustration
  • $125-$200 pays for a short story or non-fiction article
  • $450 pays for a cover
  • $4,000 pays for production (printing and mailing) of an average issue, depending on the size of a print run


Simply click on the PayPal Donate button to the right, which will take you to PayPal to complete your transaction. If you are donating over $24 Cdn, please include your mailing address (if you want print) or type “Digital Subscription” (if you want digital) in the Special Instructions box.


Cheques can be made out to ‘On Spec Magazine’, and mailed to: ON SPEC, Box 4727, Edmonton, AB T6E 5G6, Canada. If you are donating over $24 Cdn and wish a subscription gift, please include the mailing address you’d like us to use with your cheque.


We have a fantastic Patreon page where you can support us with monthly donations. Pick the level that works for you, and let us thank-you for your show of support.

  1. Diane and team, the site looks great. I made a donation but didn’t see where I could put my address for a subscription. Can you let me know how I can send it to you? There isn’t a Contact Us link on the site that I could find either.


    1. Thanks for your donation, Jim! The address was to go in the Special Instructions section on Paypal, but feel free to send it to onspec(at)onspec(dot)ca. We’ll get you looked after.
