A three-hour consultation on your picture book flatplan includes: assessment time and feedback – either verbally by phone or Skype or as a written report.Submissions can be author/illustrator or an illustrator working with a writer. However both people must be members. The submission must have reached first draft stage at least.
Developing a picture book idea requires a great deal of thought to create a story idea that is strong and clear enough to appeal to young readers with a synergy between text and image. Your mentor can help you with suitability of the idea for the market, engaging young children, character arcs, developing a strong narrative with words and illustrations working in sync.
Please note: This mentorship does not provide detailed edit notes or offer introductions or recommendations to publishers or agents.
To apply, you will need to download and fill in the blank 32pp flatplan, and write a 500-word max. synopsis. You can upload these when you book.
