Hobart (online) was created in 2001 and continued to update with monthly issues, until this very website was built and launched in September 2012 and we moved to daily content. Every April is devoted to an annual baseball issue, and occasional other features, columns, and themes pop up here and there.
In 2003, the journal grew into a biannual print journal, and continued with a kinda irregular schedule that usually averaged out to be about three issues every two years. We’ve mostly held to every other issue being a theme issue. As of Hobart #15, these are on indefinite hiatus.
In 2006 it grew again into books (Short Flight/Long Drive Books), with Elizabeth Ellen as Editor. We are not usually open to submissions, because we have the time, money, and resources to focus on so few titles (usually one a year), but we have been known to open submissions on rare occasion.
Our books are carried and sold exclusively by Powell’s Books in Portland, Third Place Books in Seattle, Skylight Books in LA, and Strand Bookstore in NYC, and can be purchased directly through our website.
