We’re looking forward to your submissions!
Thanks Barbara, as always, getting us moving to “march” forward with new writing.
I will submit a picture book manuscript and post as I can. Sheila Lewis
And a question, can writers submit more than one picture book manuscript? Sheila
Yes, you may submit more than one manuscript.
Reblogged this on Rebecca Klempner and commented:
A great opportunity for those who want to try their hand at picture book writing.
Thank you, Becca!
A pleasure. I hope you get some great manuscripts in!
I would like to submit a personal manuscript and if it is accepted will you be publishing it ?
Can a manuscript be submitted without illustrations ?
I do not publish picture books. Joni Sussman of Kar-Ben, the judge for the contest, may or may not decide to publish the winning entry. The manuscript should not be submitted with any illustrations – text only.
