LiteraryRejectionsIf you’re submitting work, you’re getting rejections, and the website Literary Rejections contains just the inspiration you need to keep going. Here are some examples:

  • After 5 years of continual rejection, the writer finally lands a publishing deal: Agatha Christie. Her book sales are now in excess of $2 billion. Only William Shakespeare has sold more.
  • Too different from other juveniles on the market to warrant its selling.” A rejection letter sent to Dr Seuss. 300 million sales and the 9th best-selling fiction author of all time.
  • 140 rejections stating Anthologies don’t sell” until the Chicken Soup for the Soul series by Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen sells 125 million copies.

The website also contains an agency database of more than 285 literary agencies and their latest submission policies.
