Q: Where can I buy Hermine?

A: Hermine Issue Three is available by mail through our online shop.

Q: What if I have a question about my order?

A: Please send any questions about orders to: hi@erminepublishing.com.

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

A: Issues ship from Canada. We send orders out within one business day, but shipping to the United States and even within Canada may take longer than usual at this time of year. You can contact us any time at hi@erminepublishing.com if you have concerns about your order. Thank you for your patience!

Q: When will you reopen to submissions?

A: Submissions for Issue 4 will open in spring 2023. 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. Payment for Issue 2 was $50 to $200 per story, plus two contributor copies.

Q: Do you nominate stories for prizes?

A: Yes, we nominate work published in Hermine for awards, including the Pushcart and Journey prizes. We don’t publicize or share these lists, because we’re old fashioned that way.

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!
