sometimes, when you’re supposed to be grading, or lesson-planning, or applying for jobs, or writing, or editing, or designing an ad or book cover or interior layout, or probably some combination of all of those, you procrastinate by submitting some short stories you have laying around, and you notice more journals than you remember are now charging for submissions, and you make a kinda snarky comment on facebook, and kyle minor replies, possibly equally snarkily, “I’d pay $7.23 to submit to Hobart, I think,” and so this (above) happens.

We’ve been on tour together, renting a van with five other writers and making a road trip of it, selling books for gas money. For writers who dream of a Champagne toast over a hefty book advance, the image of Dodson and Aaron Burch of Hobart magazine pouring whiskey into soda bottles might alarm, but to us, BYOW (bring your own whiskey) fit right in with the ragtag reality of our budget.
