Writing Made Easy

Do you remember advanced Atlantis - an island continent, ruled by magicians, and destroyed by nature some 25,000 years ago? Could you be one of the Atlanteans?

Would you be interested in illustrating one or more chapters of The Atlanteans?

This would be a young artist’s opportunity to add to their portfolio, not only their artwork - as seen in a future, fully illustrated, edition of The Atlanteans - but also the title of “Illustrator” on his or her resume. This opportunity is being created for students who are United States citizens and attend high schools, art schools, colleges and/or universities.

No further compensation will be offered to the student(s) by the author, or the publisher, other then a credit line. The artwork used within The Atlanteans will become the sole property of the author. All artwork is to be scanned and submitted over the Internet. All originals remain with the student. No submissions will be returned.

One illustration will be chosen for each of 35 chapters in the novel, and will appear in a future “fully illustrated” edition of the book. More than one artist will be considered. If chosen, your artwork would most likely appear on one full page, at the beginning of a chapter. If more than one piece of art is used per chapter, it may appear somewhere within the chapter, as follows:


(Artist’s signature, school, city and state)

At the present time, the publisher can only publish in black and white, although the artwork should be created in full color, and then copied into a black and white format by the publisher. All submissions should be submitted via the Internet, only.

If, in the future, a colored version of the artwork can be used, it will be used in a cymk colorization. So please submit/scan 5x8-inch color drawings, with a bright spring palette. When artwork is submitted in full color, it will actually give many variations of gray, rather than just black and white when converted into the required format.

The publisher’s graphic policy is that the artwork must be submitted in 300 dpi images, in tiff file format, 5x8-inch, which will give the drawing a ½-inch border during the printing process. Please use this format. You can draw either an upright drawing on a page, or a sideways drawing, at your discretion. The book’s actual size will be 6”x9” in both hardback and paperback.

A copy of The Atlanteans will be available through your local library (please make a request for the book, if not yet ordered by the librarian in charge). Or the book can be purchased at a local bookstore, or via this website.

Each illustration should create a visual reference for the reader, of an important scene contained within each of the following chapters. Parenthetical suggestions are just that, suggestions. The artist’s ideas and discretion will be considered. Think about what you would want to “see” illustrated in the story:
