Place: Medialab-Prado. Plaza de las Letras, C/ Alameda, 15 · Madrid

This meeting will analyze the influence of blogs on the traditional narrative. Publishers, writers, critics and booksellers will exchange experiences related to this new type of narrative that arose from new technologies. [live streaming] Free admission. First-come, first-served basis


The Meeting will aim to answer questions such as the following: 

  • What would we consider a literary blog?
  • What do litblogs contribute to current narratives, and vice versa?
  • What is the role of professional (and amateur) writers on this new playing field?
  • Does it enrich or impoverish creative space?
  • How is this medium different from others like physical or digital books? From other genres?
  • Could it become a literary genre in its own right? 
  • How does a literary blog get turned into a published book? Is that a natural aspiration?
  • What do readers think about the topic?  What about critics? Publishers? Philologists?
