Q: Where can I buy Hermine?
A: Hermine is available by mail through our online shop, or if you live in Toronto, at the Type Books Junction location via curbside pickup.
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 three weeks or more. 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 will re-open in the fall. Please sign up for our newsletter to get an early heads-up on the exact date.
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!
