Care in Publishing: Resilience in the Face of Rejection

December 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The path to publication can be riddled with rejection. Whether you are looking for an agent, submitting to publishers, sending your manuscript out to contests, or receiving a challenging round of editorial feedback, cultivating care is key. On Sat, Dec 2, join local authors Rebekah Bergman, Nada Samih-Rotondo and Candace Williams at LitArts RI for an honest discussion about the difficulties inherent in traditional publishing—including the barriers writers from historically underrepresented identities are forced to navigate—and explore the resources and self-care practices these recently published authors turned to in moments of despair. Learn productive strategies for approaching the publishing world, connect with fellow writers facing these challenges, and shore up your resilience in the face of rejection.

This event is made possible by funding from Providence Arts Culture and Tourism.
