who we are

we have been around for awhile, but have only recently grabbed a new shell as word hermit press. we relish our independence and are happy to hide inside the skin of our writers, providing the service and support they need for their writing to reach the world.

while every industry lives by slotting a product into its ‘right’ place, we thrive on adaptive juxtapositions. like the resourceful hermit crab, we are excited to work with ideas that don’t have a predefined package and are confident enough to claim their own place. we are intrigued by genre-bending, creative, clever and provocative.

novel length (75,000 words or greater) is our primary interest.
