OK... I know everyone ELSE gets these when applying to exhibitions and fairs and such (but not me ;) ).... so I am wondering here ...........



What do you do with your rejection letters and FAXes and emails and tweets and such?

John;
I don't get any rejection letters either! I did have a bad review from a show once where the reviewer said I made "pseudo Romanian pottery." I don't even know what that is, and I know a LOT about pottery
If I got a lot of rejections, I would make an "art piece" out of them on my studio wall.

Hmmm ... I get rejection emails nowadays .... Don't get the fun of ripping them up ... Just the computer tone from sending them to the trash bin which is definitely not as much fun.

I don't keep rejection letters. Just delete or recycle bin depending on the media.

Oops..... I have to edit the lead in question. The very word "letters" there is dating the whole concept. I'm therefore guessing that the Board member that submitted that question to the original question pool was .... ahem....... a "more mature" individual like myself who gerw up with "rejection letters".

best,
