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 the publication of print issues is paired with a month of "bonus materials."

In 2003, the journal grew into a biannual print journal, and continues with a kinda irregular schedules that usually seems to average out to be about three issues every two years. We've also mostly held to every other issue being a theme issue, though this schedule and structure could break at any moment.

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 distributed by Small Press Distribution and can be purchased directly through our website or through major online retailers such as Amazon and Powell's Books.
