INTERVIEW WITH A CONTEST JUDGE

In this episode, I interview frequent ICL contest judge and longtime instructor Nancy Coffelt. As well as being a multi-published picture book author and illustrator, Nancy is a fine artist and has been showing in galleries across the country since 1984. Her work is included in personal, public, and corporate collections around the world. She works in both 2D and 3D, primarily in oil pastel and in paper mosaic. Animals are her main subject matter and Nancy welcomes custom orders!

Nancy also writes and illustrates books for children. Her books include Catch That Baby, Fred Stays with Me, and The Big Eclipse

Hi Nancy! Sounds like a fun book, but we only publish books that support our courses. We did however write the book on current publishers looking for children's books. Check out our Book Market Guide in the IFW Bookstore. It lists hundreds of publishers, what kinds of books they publish, submission guidelines, and more. It should help you find a home for your story. Here's a link: https://www.instituteforwriters.com/book-markets-for-childrens-writers-2021.html

I have a book needing illustration. Its title is 'Glue-200,000 Years Ago'. My one attempt at getting it published failed. They said it was original and had great subtle humor. Are you interested in this title? I think it has a beautiful setup for an illistrator. I haven't been published yet as an author of narrative fiction. I have been published as an author of writings for Canadian Human Rights. I'm retired and hope to make writing my next passion. Sincerely, Nancy Bulman
