$5 non-refundable submission fee.
Name: Include your full name as it should be printed in the anthology.
Format: The anthology will be printed in black and white. Your artwork should be a black and white illustration. Simple line drawings work the best but be sure your sketch isn't too light. You can check this when you scan your artwork.

Email a JPEG of your illustration to Mrs. Bullard on or before April 5th as an EMAIL ATTACHMENT to cbullard@thencla.org. You may email these before April 5th.

Note: If you are the author and illustrator, you will only pay one submission fee.
