Illustrators: If you are beginning to find your way into the business of illustrating for the children's market and you are not sure where to begin here is a suggestion. Look out your window - write a short poem/verse about the weather of the day. Illustrate several drawings to reflect your poem on one page or a spread of two pages. You can file it until you feel you have done your best, then submit to a children's magazine. Buy the CHILDREN'S WRITER'S & ILLUSTRATOR'S MARKET BOOK or check out one at your library. All the children's magazines are listed at KIDS MAGAZINE WRITERS http://www.kidmagwriters.com/. I will have an article published in this emagazine - Feb. issue.
