Giving a Voice to Those Without a Publishing Deal

The quest to be read consumes the life of the writer. Doors too often close in their face. Rejection dangles the temptation to quit before their eyes on a frequent basis. Their prose is silent, as are their voices.

Unpublished writers are some of the most dedicated, hardworking, unrewarded creative individuals on the planet.

Their stories of rejection, and their journeys to the promised land of a publishing deal, matter. They embody the relentless ambition of a dream. They remind the publishing industry that talent is always knocking on the door. That no matter how many no’s they hear they will never give up. It is not an option. Writing is what makes them who they are. It defines them.

This site will give them a voice. Through a series of blog posts, writers from across all genres and countries will be able to share their personal experiences of rejection. This community will help each other, and inspire those about to embark on the arduous journey to print.
