    Permissions Policy:
    Permission to publish material controlled by the Ernest Hemingway Foundation will be granted in accordance with the following guidelines:
    -Single quotations should not exceed 150 words.*
    -The aggregate quotations from a single work should not exceed 10% of that work.*
    -Payment of the fee must be received in advance.
    -The publication must include notice of copyright for the quoted material as follows: © [year of publication] The Ernest Hemingway Foundation.
    -The author must provide two copies of the final publication, one to the President of the Foundation and one to Stults & Balber, P.C. at the addresses shown above.
    * Exceptions to the amount of material permitted to be quoted will be made only if the author demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Foundation that he or she cannot adequately present or substantiate a critical argument without occasional longer quotations.
    Fees: Fees will be determined on the basis of (1) whether the request is for a commercial or scholarly publication, and (2) the amount and nature of the material to be quoted.
    -Commercial publications (generally print runs of more than 5,000 copies, coupled with royalties): Authors must reach agreement with the Foundation as to an appropriate fee, which may in some instances include a division of royalties. The usual rate is $100 to $500 per letter for quotations that meet the above guidelines.
    -Scholarly publications (generally articles in scholarly journals or critical collections, and books of literary history, criticism or biography with anticipated sales of less than 5,000 copies): Authors will typically be charged a fee of $100 to $500 per letter for quotations that meet the above guidelines.
    Reductions in these fees may be granted at the sole discretion of the Foundation upon demonstration that the author's total compensation from the publication would be disproportionately small relative to the cost of permission. Generally, the Foundation's fee will not exceed 50% of the author's total compensation.
