Q: Where can I buy Hermine?

A: Hermine is available by mail through our online shop, or see our list of stockists.

Q: How long will it take my issue to ship?

A: Issues ship from Canada. Please allow for extra time for delivery during the state of emergency due to COVID-19. We send orders out within two business days, but shipping to the United States and even within Canada may take longer than usual. You can contact us any time at “hi [at] erminepublishing [dot] com” if you have concerns about your order. Thank you for your patience!

Q: When will you re-open submissions?

A: Submissions for Issue 2 are open from November 15 to November 30. Sign up for our newsletter to get an early heads-up on future reading periods.

Q: What kind of stories are you looking for?

A: The best way to get a sense of the type of stories we like is to read an issue of the magazine. In a nutshell, though, we’re looking for original voices. And we want to hear from absolutely everyone, including writers with no previous publishing history.

Q: Do you pay your writers?

A: Yes! Payment may vary from year to year, but Issue One authors received 8 cents/word CAD plus two contributors copies.

Q: What is the best way to support Hermine?

A: We are so grateful for your support. We don’t run ads, so buying an issue helps out immensely. If you can’t buy an issue, tell your friends about us!
