Rejection Tales: Rejections are part of the writing process. Do you cry about them--or laugh? Come hear our rejection tales and advice for dealing with them!
Rejections happen to all writers, but they're not always easy to deal with, and the prospect of getting rejected discourages some writers from even submitting their work. We'll talk about strategies for dealing with story rejections and share funny, encouraging, and not-so-great rejections we've received. We'll even bring examples! A fun and encouraging panel for writers dealing with or worried about rejections.
First Novel from Both Sides of the Desk: Aspiring writers won't want to miss this chance to learn about the first novel process! Come and ask a newly-published novelist and his editors your questions about novel publishing from either side of the desk!
The editors of Third Person Press, along with first-time novelist James F.W. Thompson, will share their perspectives on publishing a first novel and answer your questions. How much work is involved? What might a writer expect? How long does the process take? Come and find out about novel publishing from either side of the desk!
