Non-Fiction (NF) / Word count in MG NF

I know that word count can vary widely in MG NF, but does anyone know what the low end would be on that?

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm pubbed in the US PB trade market, and in the comic industry overseas. I am interested in submitting a GN to a US trade publisher, but know that guidelines aren't as carved in stone for this genre as others. Other than formatting the manuscript in a comics style, are there any writers-only out there who can tell me if they sent anything else with their script? (And did you add a sketch of the arrangement of panels per page--I don't mean illos--just empty boxes, or anything else?)

Thanks in advance for any help!

Research / Re: what's a mail stop like in the 80s ?

"General Delivery"--as I understand it, you could have mail sent to you c/o general delivery at a post office, and the post office would hold it until you called for it. Convenient for long-distance hikers, hitchhikers, travelers who didn't know exactly where in a town they would be staying, or exactly which dates.
For overseas travel, I think American Express provided some sort of similar mail hold and pickup service.

nikkee-vincent - I've heard good things about Vista Print and Moo, but haven't used them for artwork. Have used a local printer until recently. Have a new local printer I'm going to try next time. If that doesn't work, I'm going to try Vista Print or Moo. Good luck!

aleksey, since you're an scbwi member, you have access to "The Book" which has names, titles, and addresses for publishers (under "publications" tab on the scbwi site - you have to be logged in to download it). Some publishers have specific instructions on their websites too, so always good to double check before sending.
