  • Can you help me get published, find an agent or read my manuscript?
    No. We are sorry. Eric wishes he could. He truly wants you to be successful and share your creative talents with the world. Eric has put together advice for beginning authors. Please see below. -------------------------------- Dear Writer I wish you the greatest success as a writer. Here is my advice as you get started: 1. Write because you love to write. 2. Learn everything you can about writing picture books. 3. Learn everything you can about publishing (which is a business). 4. Join SCBWI, go to meetings and regional conferences. 5. Follow Malcolm Gladwell's advice to put in 10,000 hours to achieve mastery of your craft. 6. Read your stories to children every chance you get. Follow their nonverbal feedback. 7. Study great children's books and find what they have in common. 8. Make sure you're writing has amazing rhythm/meter (think like a musician, drummer). 9. If you use rhyme, do so very well. 10. Develop lovable characters. 11. Focus on imagery, you want the reader to see the story without the pictures. 12. Understand that in the end people forget what they read and remember how they felt. 13. Never give up. 14. Take rejection in stride and follow your gut. Both I Love My White Shoes and Four Groovy Buttons were rejected at first. I kept trying. I hope this is helpful. It is a long journey but worth the effort. Meow for Now Eric Litwin
