Will Review manuscripts and illustrations - PREFERS GENRE to be picture book
Join in an opportunity to receive supportive and editing suggestions from your peers to improve your portfolio, illustrations or picture book manuscript.
Sometimes it's a small technical issue, a shift in point of view or that the story needs to start in a different place. Revisions and editorial comments are part of the publishing process.
We are pleased to have Lindsay as our Moderator!
