The world’€™s first literary prize for books based on blogs, or ‘€œblooks,’€? is being launched today by its sponsor, Lulu.
The Lulu Blooker Prize is the first contest to honor blooks, a hybrid literary form that has evolved in recent years from web sites, particularly the web sites known as blogs. ‘€œBlooks are the hottest new publishing trend,’€? says Bob Young, CEO of Lulu.
The prize will reward the best blooks in three categories: Fiction, Non-Fiction and Comic-Blooks (based on web-comics), but with one overall winner. It is open to blooks published anywhere by anyone, provided they are in English.
