I’m Corbin Hiar, a Minnesotan writer living in Washington, DC. I am currently working as an associate editor at PBS MediaShift and climate blogger at UN Dispatch. I am also a regular freelance contributor to the website of Intelligent Life, an arts and culture quarterly published in Europe by the Economist Group, and an occasional contributor to Economist.com and the website of The New Republic. Before moving to DC to join the Ben Bagdikian Fellowship Program at Mother Jones, I worked a web internship at The Nation in New York City.
I created Hiar Learning so I could have one place to re-post the pieces I publish elsewhere and a home for any other writing I produce. On Twitter, and the upper right-hand corner of this blog, you can find my shorter, more musical musings. Thank you for reading and do come back soon or — better yet — follow me via Twitter or RSS.
ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE: Because most of the publications for which I write greatly value reader input, this blog will only accept comments on pieces which were first posted here or where the original site does not accept comments. That said, I always love to see what readers think of my writing so please make a comment if you feel so compelled.
And if you have any general feedback, story ideas, or job leads, my email is corbin[dot]hiar[at]gmail[dot]com.
