Procedures for Requesting Permission to Publish Portions of the Works of Ernest Hemingway

I. Unpublished Works and Works Posthumously Published in Periodicals or Anthologies:
U.S. Publication:

Requests for rights to publish unpublished letters, and to republish letters posthumously published in journals or anthologies, in the U.S. in all markets must conform to the requirements listed under “Form of Request” below, and should be directed to:

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation
Prof. Kirk Curnutt
Department of Language, Literature and Philosophy
Troy University-Montgomery
Montgomery AL 36103-4419
kcurnutt@troy.edu
Fax: 334-241-5917; 334-241-9701

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation will refer requests for foreign publication of the above material to Simon & Schuster, which now represents the Hemingway family for all relevant permissions both domestic and foreign.

Rights to publish other unpublished materials, and materials posthumously published in journals or anthologies, in the U.S. are jointly controlled by the Foundation and the Hemingway family, and both must approve requests. However, the Hemingway family is not currently granting permission to publish “unpublished works or derivative material” and explicitly asks that neither the family nor their literary rights manager, Michael Katakis, be contacted directly about permissions. If there is a legitimate question about permission, Simon & Schuster will refer the enquiry to Mr. Katakis.
