The Exquisite Picture Book Project
I will choose a submission by end-of-day Monday, illustrate the page by Friday, mail the original art to the suggester, and then wait for the next Monday to choose the next story line or lines—lines which should build on the previous week's submission so we can continue our Exquisitely meandering story.
I'm hesitant to draft too many rules, but I think I'll start by suggesting that each submission is under 50 words (one line or several) and written for a broad audience (all ages). If a submission is not in English, please include a translation.
The more people who participate, the more adventurous the process, so:
All submissions will now be accepted only through my website (above), but updates and news will be posted below:
Twitter: @tylerclarkburke (if the word count doesn't fit, send me a picture of your submission)
Get in touch if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by The Exquisite Picture Book Project!

P.S. Please share if you wouldn't mind, especially with teachers (I'd love for some classroom submissions). And with other writers or illustrators. Other parents. Friends. Old relations. Other extroverts leading an introvert's life. My secret dream is to get so many submissions that I can set up a weekly poll so participants can help me choose the next part of the story.
P.P.S. I haven't decided if the illustrations will all look stylistically different or if they will all look the same-ish. Surprise me, me. I think I'll know once the story reveals itself. My hope is to receive so many submissions that I can set up a poll weekly so followers can help me choose the next instalment.
