Waking the Lion: Inside Writing -- Rejection
Rejection is a mainstay in the world of art. Artists have struggled with this for thousands of years. In the modern era rejection has devolved into something impersonal and unproductive. This show will present a few categories and a few more thoughts on how to navigate the sea of negativity and still be successful. Not every ice cube is an iceberg and not every editor an unfeeling piece of furniture.
Since the dawn of humankind the Night has played an integral part of our lives. From rites about ancient spirits to the writer with a thought and muse the Night is a partner in our quest to find peace and promise.
