Eugene: Writing By the Numbers with Jessica Cagle-Faber

October 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Writing By the Numbers

This meeting is on WEDNESDAY and not on our regular Thursday meeting day.

When a writer friend announced he was trying to rack up 100 rejections as quickly as possible, Jessica thought, ‘that sounds gruesome.’ But she realized it would help her overcome the fear of putting her writing into the world. Although Jessica hasn’t reached the 100 mark, she has been learning how to handle rejection, and she wants to help other writers do the same.
