This is a neat and interesting illustration contest run by a woman who is helping her husband find an illustrator for a German literature magazine. The publishers are currently preparing a paperback book entitled, "was sind literarische weblogs?" ("what are literary weblogs?"). The book is scheduled for the 1st quarter 2008 and will be available through German and Swiss bookstores as well as through Amazon. From the site:
The book will be an anthology of essays and weblog posts contributed by German writing authors â€“ published and unpublished â€“ who are running literary weblogs in the German writing blogosphere. The authors will contribute two texts each. The first text will be about their passion for publishing and writing a literary blog. From their own weblogs the authors choose a favorite (already published) text for the second part.
