Digital publisher Open Road Integrated Media has partnered with women’s blog network BlogHer to publish an eBook anthology of works from the blog.
The content for BlogHer Voices of the Year: 2012 will include contributions chosen by a committee of the blog’s readers. Readers have selected works from almost 1,700 submissions in various categories including: heart, humor, identity, op-ed, parenting, and visuals. BlogHer co-founder/CEO Lisa Stone said that the book has been long in the making. She stated: “We have long had a vision of bringing the great writing in our community together in a curated ebook format.” BlogHer and Open Road will co-publish six different collections over the next year, each based on a particular theme.
The partnership is part of Open Road’s Publishing Partners program, which includes eBooks from magazines such as Esquire, Cosmopolitan and Seventeen.
