Title: Writing the wordlesss, or nearly wordless, picture book.
Post by: shutta-crum on March 05, 2021, 05:55 AM
I often get asked how I formatted my manuscript for my two nearly wordless children's books (Mine! and Uh-Oh! Published by Knopf/Random House.) when I'm not an illustrator. So I thought I'd let you know that I've written a posting about all that--including a look at the first page of the submission. Please share this posting with other writers you know. Here's the link at the Florida Writers Associaiton Blog: https://floridawriters.blog/writing-the-wordless-or-almost-wordless-picture-book/     Enjoy!

Thank you so much for sharing these! Seeing another writer's manuscript is always a treat, and especially as in this case when the form is unusual. Many thanks!
