Submission guidelines

Please read a back issue of Hermine to get an idea of the short fiction we’re looking for.

Stories must be under 4000 words. Simultaneous submissions are fine, just notify us right away if your story is accepted elsewhere. Stories must be previously unpublished. Please include a short cover letter letting us know where you’re located. Include your publication history if you have one, but don’t let a lack of credits stop you from submitting. We want to hear from everyone.

Submit no more than one story per submissions call. If you haven’t heard from us after four months, feel free to query.

There is no fee to submit, and we pay writers. Hermine Short Stories
