Title: Wordless Picture books
Post by: iyerani on February 26, 2014, 08:17 AM
 :winter Hi all, can someone guide me to a resource that explains how to submit a wordless picture book to publishers? I recall reading an article sometime back, but could not find it when I searched the blue boards for Wordless Picture books. I totally appreciate any guidance you can provide.  :thankyou

There's an article in the March/April 2013 issue of the SCBWI Bulletin about subbing wordless or almost wordless picture books. I believe you can read archived issues online as long as you're logged in to your SCBWI account. I hope that helps!  :goodluck

You might want to also check Linda Ashman's site. She has published two nearly wordless books. You can download the MS.

I believe you submit the dummy to the art director. But I'm no expert, I'm not even an illustrator.
