To write and publish is to be rejected. And though it can be brutal, rejection is also a blessing, a dark teacher, and nothing personal. Take it from an author, a long-time editor, and a teacher who knows. In this two-hour live masterclass, Elissa Bassist will reframe rejection and normalize it to better grasp how it makes us better writers. She’ll cover the easiest ways to avoid rejection; how to use rejection as feedback and fuel; and how to reduce rejection hangovers and work faster through setbacks.
Bottom line: Getting good at rejection is the secret to success, both professionally and romantically. Look forward to a lecture/sermon, handouts, a Q&A, and a lot of crying — but also reaching the understanding that, in the words of comedian-turned-Dancing With the Stars contestant Kel Mitchell, “A setback just gets you ready for your comeback.”
