Hermine is an annual, print-only journal of short fiction. The National Magazine Awards recently recognized Mehdi M. Kashani with a nomination in the fiction category for his story “While Tehran Was Silent” in Issue One. Issue Two includes some really fun and beautiful stories, including “Oh How We Miss You, How About Joining Us,” an atmospheric meditation on longing and loss by Anne Baldo, and a desert island story by Emmett Schlenz that is dark and funny and—we'd even venture to say—hopeful.
Tips From the Editor
The best way to get a sense of the type of stories we like is to read an issue of the magazine. We’re looking for original voices, and we want to hear from absolutely everyone, including writers with no previous publishing history.
