Since Literary Hub began in early 2011 as a blog, it has been debated whether the website is a blog or magazine. Literary Hub’s editorial policy states that the website should be seen as a “forum for conversation and debate” (about literature), which makes it more similar to a magazine than a blog. However, Literary Hub’s layout and design are more akin to a blog, with frequent posts and short, easy-to-read articles.
Additionally, Literary Hub often features excerpts from books on its front page, which makes it more of a blog than a magazine. In conclusion, Literary Hub is most likely a blog because of its layout and design, as well as its frequent feature of excerpts from books.
