Let's work together!
I've learned a lot about writing and illustrating picture books, and I'd love to share that knowledge with you. Here you will see a list of the critique services I offer with details about each and a link to my ko-fi page to purchase. Don't need art or a critique but want to support me? Buy me a coffee!

Critiques and Mentorship

What People Are Saying

Anne offered feedback in such a positive, supporting, and constructive way. Her detailed comments helped me identify that "off thing" I couldn't put my finger on. Not only did she help me find a solution for my manuscript, she provided validation by identifying my manuscript's strengths. To top it all off, she evaluated my portfolio in a way that gave me a sense of direction and confidence at the same time. I highly recommend a critique by Anne!

Illustrator Mentorship

If you are an illustrator working on your portfolio or a dummy and want some one-on-one guidance, this is the mentorship for you! At the start of a mentorship, I will look at the work you have created, and, with you, assess what the next best step for you is in your illustration career. This could be a portfolio overhaul, creating a kidlit website, working on developing a dummy, or revising an existing dummy. I will ask you for some information via email, and then we will have a half hour virtual conversation to talk about what your goals are and what I think your next best steps are. From there, we will set goals together.  The second and third meetings will be an hour long, virtual meeting to check in on goal progress and give feedback on the work you have done. (I will ask for your work a week before the meeting).  The mentorship will end with a half hour virtual wrap up meeting to discuss the progress you made and best next steps. The mentorship is $150.00 with the option for a follow up call for $30.00. Questions? Want to sign up? Send me an email via my contact form on my about page or email anne@anneappert.com.
