Hi,

I have written a picture book that is all dialogue.  My critique group partners have suggested formatting it like a script. Does anyone have experience with this type of book? Will editors accept it formatted like a scrpt?

There are some illustration notes, but the dialogue can be confusing without something like this.  And yes, I have put a lot of work into making the content direct the story as best as it can.

Thank You,

Christopher

Until others chime in, you can try searching for this topic. I'm pretty sure it's been at least one thread.
