Are you an artist or crafter ready to dazzle the world with your talents? Have you always dreamed of being a published author? Then Walter Foster Publishing wants to hear from you!
As the world’s leading publisher of instructional art and craft books for adults and children, Walter Foster has been teaching beginning and aspiring artists how to draw, paint, craft, and create for nearly 100 years. And in anticipation of our centennial, we want you to join the celebration!
From October 1 through December 31, 2021, we are inviting artists of all disciplines to enter Walter Foster’s “Win a Book Deal” contest for an opportunity to author and publish an instructional art book with us!
Aspiring authors are invited to submit entries in the following categories: Drawing (any fine art medium), Painting (any fine art medium), Craft (eg. crochet, embroidery, polymer clay, jewelry making, etc.), and Other Art (mixed media, cartooning, paint pouring, block printing, manga/anime, etc.).
Submissions should be instructional in nature with practical tips, techniques, and step-by-step projects and/or lessons that demonstrate how to work in a specific medium. The goal is to teach beginning/first-time artists and/or hobbyists how to work with a specific medium or in a specific subject matter. Think of it as a beginning art class in a book.
