Rejection is something many writers are far too familiar with—even Robert Frost. In 1912, before Frost moved to England and published his first collections of poetry, he submitted some of his poems to the editor of The Atlantic Monthly, who at the time was Ellery Sedgwick. Sedgwick rejected Frost’s poetry, claiming The Atlantic Monthly had no place for Frost’s “vigorous verse.” Read the whole story and find out what happened when Frost and Sedgwick crossed paths years later.
