Free Fall Friday – Guest Critiquer Susan Hawk

I know all of you expected to read the first pages submitted and what Susan Hawk had to say about each of them, but Susan’s computer crashed and it’s at the doctors. So I am going to put up July’s Picture Prompt today, instead of next Friday and post Susan’s comments for June on July 6th. On the bright side, this give you more time to write. Here is the First Page Picture Prompt created by illustrator Brian Bowes for July:

Brian Bowes was featured this year on Illustrator Saturday. I think all of Brian’s illustrations could tell lots of stories, so I think you will have fun writing for this one. You can see more of Brian’s work by visiting his website:

WRITERS:  Please attach your double spaced, 12 point font, 23 line first page to an e-mail and send it to kathy(dot)temean(at)gmail(dot)com. Also cut and paste it into the body of the e-mail. Put “July 23rd First Page Prompt” in the subject line.

ILLUSTRATORS: You still have until July 26th to submit an illustration for June. I’m looking for illustrations that are “Out of this world”.  I am going to let you interpret that and use your imagination.  So show off a little and send it something for July. I will post the illustrations as they come in during the month, but I will definitely post all by July 31st. Please make sure the illustration is at least 500 pixels wide and include a blurb about yourself and a link to see more of your work. Please send it to kathy(dot)temean(at)gmail(dot)com and put “June Illustration” in the subject box.

Check back next week for Susan Hawk and June’s first page critiques.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Hi,
    Are you taking submitted artwork after August 2012


    • Paul,

      Each month I put out a different call for illustrations. You can send me anytime even if it doesn’t fit the call and I will use it when I think it will fit with a post. Hope to see something from you.
