Note for US members: date above is in EU format (dd/mm/yy) as is time. Webinar is on April 21 and starts at 2:30 pm NYC time.


with Kendra Levin, Executive Editor Viking Children's Books (imprint of PRH)

In this interactive discussion, executive editor and life coach for writers Kendra Levin will tackle every writer’s favorite topic: rejection. She’ll help attendees translate the vague language of rejection letters into practical advice to inform their writing, discuss methods for processing and criticism, and offer psychological techniques for extracting value—and jettisoning stress—from feedback. You’ll come out of the webinar with a better understanding of agents’ and editors’ sometimes cryptic language of rejection, better equipped to dig constructive feedback out of rejection letters, and with increased confidence and resilience.


Registration limited to 15 attendees to keep the intimate, friendly atmosphere we are so pleased to offer you at the Europolitan.
