Adelle Waldman Craft Talk—Dealing with Rejection: A Writer's Guide

Slonim Living Room / Stone Room

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

2:00pm-3:00pm Add to calendar

As an unpublished fiction writer in her twenties, it was easy for Adelle Waldman to imagine that well-known fiction writers had been anointed from their earliest youth and had never suffered through years of self-doubt, doubt from others (parents, friends) and, yes, rejection. Now knowing that's not the case, she still believes writers should talk about this more. In this craft talk, Waldman will talk candidly about having her first novel rejected by every publisher in town, an experience that seemed devastating at the time—but which later came to seem like a piece of good fortune because it paved the way for her to write a better novel. More importantly than her own story, though, is a truth she'd like to impress on everyone: how well one endures rejection is, she believes, one of the key distinguishing characteristics between successful writers and those who give up. We should put as much care into learning how to handle rejection constructively—avoiding both the extremes of rage at the one doing the rejecting on the one hand and despair/self-loathing on the other extreme—as we put into making the finest sentences possible.

Trans Europe Migration: Following the Refugees' Trail Photography Exhibit Opening with Guest Speaker Sana Mustafa, Syrian Refugee & Activist

In 2015, the number of migrants and refugees reaching Europe reached an unprecedented peak, with more than one million people arriving in Greece and Italy from Turkey and Libya. In October 2015, photographer Rocco Rorandelli was assigned by Vanity Fair to cover the crisis along the "Balkan Route," using aerial imaging. This unique point of view provides an interesting perspective on the issues, detaching the viewer from single individuals and showing the phenomenon as a universal human trait.
