When Dow Phumiruk sent me this lovely illustration it made me think of all the writers and illustrators sending their talented projects off into the universe for someone to discover.

Dow is an aspiring children’s book illustrator. She won the 2013 SCBWI On-the-Verge Emerging Voices Award that promotes diversity in children’s books. Please visit her portfolio site at or her blog at to see more of her work. Thank you Dow for sharing.

Stoneslide Books welcomes unsolicited submissions. They read them blind, and your work is judged, not your reputation or publishing history. Only when they complete the selection process do they reveal to themselves what your name is and who you are.

Our submission form.
