Picture Books, Anyone?

Claude Renoir

  • Do you have a picture book in you?

Erica Verrillo has put together a list of 24 publishers accepting picture books without an agent. Check it out.

  • Picture books aren’t going anywhere.

Except perhaps across borders. A trade publishing house Amazon Publishing has created a new children’s book imprint Amazon Crossing Kids that will focus on children’s picture books in translation.

  • Are you–an adult–into picture books?

You aren’t alone. “Why have we come to a place where picture books are relegated to the landscape only of the very young? It was not always thus.”

Go write one, or read one, enjoy!
