Course description

Every writer faces rejection at some point, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t write, or worse, should stop writing altogether, even though it can be incredibly discouraging and demotivating.

If you want to get your work published, you have to let others read it. And unfortunately, you can’t expect every reader to like it. Different people will have different opinions about your writing – in the same way you love books that others really don’t. This means both positive and negative feedback. Just look at the star ratings on Amazon to get a feel for the different reactions readers can have to the same book!

Maria McHale and Sam Blake understand how difficult it can be to constantly put yourself out there, only to be met with disappointment. But it’s vital to remember that every “no” brings you closer to a “yes.”

It’s time to take control of your writing career and turn those rejections into opportunities for growth.

The Masterclass, “Beating Rejection: Overcome rejection, develop resilience and turn it into a driving force,” is here to help.

Places are limited so click below to join, it’s just €25 for the full two hours (plus booking fees) – the recording will be sent to you by email after the event if you can’t make it at 7.30pm GMT on 23rd February.

In this class, you’ll learn why rejection happens and the common mistakes to avoid, plus how to into a driving force for success. Our expert mentors – international bestselling author Sam Blake and journalist and NLP coach Maria McHale will share their own experiences and provide practical tips and strategies for overcoming rejection and continuing to pursue your dreams.
