Free Fall Friday – Opportunity – Flyer

ANNOUNCEMENT: Chris Wilkinson of Wilkinson Studios will be stepping up to do the critiques for TAKE A LOOK SUNDAY:

Ronnie finished up with the submission sent in, so we have openings.

If you do not have an agent and would like to be featured and hear what is working or how it could be tweaked to help you sell your work, then please send Two or Three SEQUENTIAL illustrations (Two with the SAME “story/characters‎”) to: Kathy.temean (at) Illustrations should be at least 500 pixels wide. Please put “ILLUSTRATOR PORTFOLIO” in the subject area and include a blurb about yourself that I can use to introduce you to everyone. Each Sunday one illustrator will be chosen.


CALL FOR ILLUSTRATORS: Remember I’m always looking for illustrations I can use with articles I post. Send to: Kathy.temean (at) Put “ILLUSTRATION FOR BLOG” in the subject area. Remember all illustration need to be 500 pixels wide. Include a blurb about yourself, too.


February’s Guest Critiquer for February is Adrienne Szpyrka. She is an assistant editor at Sky Pony Press, searching for new middle grade and young adult voices. She acquires mostly contemporary and historical fiction, but reads all genres in her spare time and has a weakness for a good princess story. She loves books that move her (bonus points if they make her laugh), and she’s always looking for stories that bring more diversity to the kids’ book world. She attended the University of Michigan as an undergrad and has a master’s in publishing from Emerson College.

Please check back next Friday to read the four first pages and Adrienne’s comments.


Nice example of Bookfair Flyer. Sounds like fun, too.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Thank you so much for the unexpected shoutout about the Bookfair, Kathy! So very appreciated! Hope to see you soon at a SCBWI event. It’s amazing what you do for the writing/illustrating community!


    • I agree with Marlo Berliner … you do amazing things for all creatives, Kathy. Thank you. 🙂
