Resilience as a Writer

7 October @ 18:30 - 20:15

About this event

Experiencing rejection and setbacks can come part and parcel with being a writer, but how do we build the resilience we need to dust ourselves off and start again?

This October, Nikki Dudley joins us for a session that aims to help participants explore what it means to be a writer and how to respond to and deal with rejection. Participants will also discover ways to reflect on rejection, demystify the submissions process and take part in a discussion on how we set goals going forward.

By the end of the workshop, you will have a better understanding and ownership of the term ‘writer’ and the ability to set realistic goals, cope with rejection and explore resilience through writing and discussion.
