Submissions for Issue 3 are now open.

Submission guidelines

The best way to get a sense of what we’re looking for is to read a back issue.

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 Stories must be previously unpublished.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.

Hermine pays $50 to $200 CAD per story, plus two contributor copies.

There is no fee to submit.

Please use the submissions portal to send us your work. We look forward to reading it!
