About the Literary Genome Project:
are setting out to codify literature in a way that has not been done
before and help fans of literature discover new writing and new authors.
capturing essential attributes, or more aptly “genes”, of literature we
are creating unique genomes for published books, short stories and
essays. Using the genomes we aim to help readers discover new writing
and new authors. For emerging writers, self-published authors and
independent publishing houses this represents an exciting new way of
finding and connecting with relevant audiences.
The Literary Genome Project is a grass roots
crowd-sourced effort and we are calling on emerging authors and students
in creative writing, literature and journalism programs across the
country to join us!
