Hello, I am a graphic arts/teacher, and I am interested in getting into illustration. Any new or aspiring writer's want to collaborate?

Random, you will have greater success if you ask this question in the MOA http://www.amazon.com/forum/meet%20our%20authors/ref=cm_cd_topf_t?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx2UYC1FC06SU8S . This a reader forum.

How about adding a link where we can see some samples of your work?

Thank you for your reply, I wonder though, those people are already established and I would rather work with someone less seasoned.

There are many new authors on the MOA. I believe the majority are self-published and many have only one book to their name. I recently downloaded a book (okay, she had been published before and I guess the rights reverted back to her) and there was no cover whatsoever. I believe many would take you up on your offer.

I tried the MOA, topics get moved down the line and out of sight very quickly, and this forum seems like that won't happen.

Random, I think you would have better luck going to Goodreads and inquiring there.

People keep suggesting other places, and they don't work.

the fact that someone downvoted my inquiry tells you the kind of bullying BS that goes on in these forums.

petty adults, so sad.

Your inquiry doesn't belong here. That's why you were down voted and very likely your post was reported for abuse. These are the methods Amazon tells its customers to use. It is not bullying.

You have been told before that you aren't allowed to solicit outside of MOA, so don't be surprised at the down voted nor if Amazon deletes your post.

Fascinating discussion! Amazon does not say anything about illustrators does it?
Very telling post that no-one would bother to look in the Managing Our Authors section!

@ Random This area is for readers to discuss children's books. While a few indie authors do post here, the posters are primarily readers. If you are looking for an author to collaborate with, you would be better off looking at author forums or getting involved with the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Agents and editors of The Big 6 prefer to pick illustrators for picture books themselves rather than having submissions already illustrated. If you are interested in getting involved in picture book illustration, you can get more information from SCBWI or Writer's Digest.

Katya, I will look into that.
But to address your first point;
I understand how pissy some readers get that there are indie spammers everywhere, that being said, there is no harm nor any reason I or those like me should not be able to inquire as i have done.
The responses I have seen demonstrate a rampant sort of territoriality and childish protectiveness of the forums that is, frankly disgusting. would we really want out kids growing up to be such snots?

Apparently you wouldn't mind your child growing up to call someone a mook.
